Umpire Radios (from Irish HUA)

We are aware of a few problems that have developed at the end of last season and the start of the current season with some of the UmpireTalk radios, mainly due to natural wear and tear. Of course there are a number that continue to work with no problems.

This notice is just to say that we are working on solution in conjunction with the Provinces as everyone recognises the widespread importance of radio usage for all matches.

If we can agree on a radio then realistically we are probably looking at just after Christmas for their introduction.

These forms can be found on our website (irishhua.com) under ‘Information’ and ‘Card Reporting’ respectively. In particular, the yellow card form is a relatively quick, tick-box type form; designed to take only a few minutes to complete.

We would ask that there is strict compliance with this request and please consider getting into the habit of ...
