The series is played in ten different venues starting in October and ending in June each year. The selection of Alasdair Robertson, based on his recent refereeing form at the NACRA Sevens in Barbados last November is tantamount to his hard work and dedication over the past several years in becoming recognized throughout the region as a leading official of the sport.

Director of Rugby Richard Adams added ‘we are all delighted with Alasdair’s selection, he certainly deserves the accolade and I know that he will do well and bring back to the Islands new knowledge and direction in terms of officiating, it also goes to prove that you don’t have to be a player to excel in sport and I hope Alasdair’s success will help a new generation decide to get involved in this way.’
