Korfball Australia would like to congratulate Luke Rosie on being selected to referee at the upcoming Asia-Oceania Korfball Championships, to be held in Saitama, Japan. Luke is a highly experienced referee, having been refereeing at U23 and Open level international tournaments since 2011. Luke has also been a constant in South Australia’s State League and at National Championships for many years, and is also the Referees Director for Korfball Australia.

The 2018 Asia-Oceania Korfball Championships marks the eighth international tournament Luke has refereed in, and also his second senior Asia-Oceania Korfball Championships. Following hot on the heels of Megan’s success at the U21 World Championships, including being an Assistant Referee for the Gold Medal Match, this is a boom time for Australian referees, and it is great to see them getting the recognition they deserve internationally.

We wish Luke all the best on his trip, and we look forward to seeing him referee the best the Asia-Oceania region has to offer.
