In this episode of OnJugger we deal with one of the greatest problems facing jugger at the moment. The quality of refereeing, the exploitation of rules and the knowledge that there are no sanctions so malicious players can do what they want with impunity.
Our panel of (Stumpy) Dave Edwards, Jonas Kopka, Kate Foley, (Hot) Dave Keaveney and hosted by Mark Hill discuss and dissect all of the topics. And explain the new Irish reffing system which is being trialled at the moment.
We hope you enjoy the show and please comment, like, share and follow! We need your support!
Here are all the info-graphics from the podcast. We thought we would release these as well to help people understand the new Irish reffing system with sanctions that we are trialling at the moment.
Important to note this system and sanctions are heavily drawn from the current German and Spanish systems with our own new ideas and sanctions added. Which are in turn drawn from rugby sevens and our own experiences playing jugger for the past 13 years.

Current German Refereeing System
The main referees are usually the most experienced players. They stand at the mid points of the pitch and watch channel 1 and 4. The goal referees are usually the least experieneced and stand at opposite corners of the pitch. And they watch channel 2 and 3. But after the inital run in most of gameplay occurs in channels 2 and 3. Which means you have the least experienced players refereeing most of the action.
Irish Refereeing System
With the new irish refreeing system the main referees (usually the most experienced players) are placed at the opposite ends of the pitch. And they watch channels 2 and 3.
The side referees (usually the least experienced players) stand at the mid points of the pitch and watch channels 1 and 4.
We have done this because after the intial run in most of the action happens in channels 2 and 3. So now you will have the most experienced referees watching the most amount of gameplay.
