Rugby Union SA's Judicial Committee is an independent panel of individuals convened under World Rugby Regulation 17 and Rugby Australia's Disciplinary Rules. Its role is to adjudicate complaints under the Code of Conduct, and conduct disciplinary proceedings for Foul Play.

  • employees and volunteers
  • managers, physiotherapists, sports trainers and other support personnel
  • coaches and assistant coaches
  • players
  • referees and other match officials
