Event Sanction 

Event sanctioning ensures that all rugby union events, tournaments and matches played in Australia are conducted in a safe and professional manner, and comply with the respective International Rugby Board (IRB) Laws of the Game & Regulations, and Australian Rugby Union (ARU) Law Variations and By-Laws & Policies.

All Rugby Union events, tournaments, and matches conducted outside regular approved competitions and/or other representative matches/programs must receive formal sanctioning approval.
