The head of refereeing in the RFL is former referee Stuart Cummings. The RFL decided that from the 2007 there would be six full-time referees (this figure has risen to nine) - previously referees had been part-time. The RFL still employs part-time officials to supplement the full-time referees in the Super League and to be touch/in-goal judges in the Super League. The National Leagues are still refereed by part-time referees. The full-time referees are:
- Phil Bentham
- Steve Ganson
- Thierry Alibert
- Richard Silverwood
- Ben Thaler

Famous quotes containing the word officials:
“The ordinary man is an anarchist. He wants to do as he likes. He may want his neighbour to be governed, but he himself doesnt want to be governed. He is mortally afraid of government officials and policemen.”
—George Bernard Shaw (18561950)
“To name oneself is the first act of both the poet and the revolutionary. When we take away the right to an individual name, we symbolically take away the right to be an individual. Immigration officials did this to refugees; husbands routinely do it to wives.”
—Erica Jong (b. 1942)
“The conflict between the men who make and the men who report the news is as old as time. News may be true, but it is not truth, and reporters and officials seldom see it the same way.... In the old days, the reporters or couriers of bad news were often put to the gallows; now they are given the Pulitzer Prize, but the conflict goes on.”
—James Reston (b. 1909)
