Amy Perrett referees Women’s Rugby World Cup Final


Amy Perrett WRWC2014

2014 has already been a big year for Amy Perrett.  A regular on the Womens International Sevens tour, a Test Match debut in Scotland early in the year, a Shute Shield debut and a birthday in Paris during the Women's Rugby World Cup.  Overnight she refereed the Women's Rugby World Cup Final in Paris between England and Canada.  Everyone at NSW Rugby Referees Association is extremely proud of her achievement and thrilled to see her achieve this great honour.  Well done Amy.
