Welcome to the Chicago Area Rugby Football Union Referee Society (CARFU RS) website. This site is to assist referees and players in learning and appreciating the laws that govern our beautiful game as well as to help coordinate the assigning of Referees throughout the Chicago area. The referees of CARFU RS are dedicated to striving for excellence in rugby refereeing, from our territorial panel referees to our most recent recruits. Our Society is organized for the purpose of contributing to the growth of rugby at all levels of play for all ages, through competition at local, state, national, and international levels, and to improve the position and standards of the game of Rugby Union in the Chicago area, the Midwest Territory, and the United States.
