Congratulations Simon Bernie - Level 5

Hard work and dedication to achieve results.

Simon Bernie is the hardest working referee in Asia.

Over recent years Simon has been relentless in his aim to progress his refereeing knowledge and on field skills traveling to as many high level tournaments in Australia and supporting many regional tournaments in Asia.

Simon has just been awarded his Level 5 Referee badge at the National Touch League 2017 in Australia. One of, if not the most competitive Touch Championships in the world where many of the best referees in the game are engaged.

Touch refereeing is seen as a 'sport within a sport' where individuals 'compete' against their peers to progress their status as an official. The standards are high and the training, fitness levels and commitment are on par with elite players.

Congratulations Simon - Level 6 - here we come!
