Welcome to N.S.W. Rugby Referees Association
Steve Walsh retires from Rugby Refereeing
Friday 20th March, NSWRRA referee Steve Walsh announced his retirement from all forms of refereeing effectively immediately to persue a careeer in the Business world.
Steve refereed 56 Test matches since making his debut in 1997 at the age of 23. Last year he became Super Rugbys most capped referee, breaking the previous mark of 105 matches.
He came to Sydney in 2009 from New Zealand. He began refereeing in Sydney with our Association. That same year he won the Dick Byres Medal for the Referee of the Year. When he regained a place on the IRB Elite Referees Panel, Shute Shield appearances were rare, but he refereed 26 Shute Shield matches.
Good luck for your future in the world of Business Walshy, from everyone at the New South Wales Rugby Referees.
