Thought I'd ask the resident referees a question:

In places like Ireland, the referees seem to belong to the provinces. They "graduate" through their refereeing programmes. So for instance, Peter Fitzgibbon is part of the "Munster referees association" and his name and contact details are freely available on the official Munster rugby website.

So :

1) Is there a comparable pathway for referees in Wales? Do they "belong" to the very organisations / teams which they actually referee?

2) I realise that every referee is 110% professional about their roles, but isn't this open to a degree of scepctic as regards it's integrity?


Thanks
