Steve Savage

RFU Citing Commissioner Steve Savage died this week at the age of 60, while on duty for World Rugby in Germany.

Savage was a long-term employee of the RFU fulfilling many crucial roles around officiating in the game.

Our CEO, Steve Brown, has paid tribute to Savage saying he will leave a "tremendous legacy".

“Everyone at the RFU was immensely saddened to hear of the death of our Citing Commissioner Steve Savage," said Steve Brown.

“Steve’s prodigious knowledge, energy and enthusiasm, saw hundreds of match officials, including our professional referees, countless players and coaches derive huge benefit from his advice and support.

“Whether leading the National Panel of Referees or using his encyclopaedic knowledge of the game at NCA level, Steve, had a tremendous rapport with coaches, players and spectators.

“Steve was a much loved and greatly respected member of the match official and rugby community, both here in England and across the world. He will be much missed and leaves a tremendous legacy for the game.”
