RFU Appoints Paul Hull as Head of Professional Game Match Officials

After more than 7 years as Director of Rugby at Prior Park and, more recently, as Housemaster of Burton, Mr Hull will be leaving the College to take up a new role at the end of this academic year.

Speaking about his appointment as Head of Professional Game Match Officials, Paul Hull said: “Although I’ve been away from the professional game for a time, my involvement and passion for rugby has continued in my role as Housemaster and Director of Rugby at Prior Park College: a role I’ve thoroughly enjoyed and the decision to leave was tough." 

Phil Winstanley the Rugby Director at Premiership Rugby said: “This is one of the most crucial roles in the English game and we need to have someone who can challenge and develop our existing and future match officials. We believe that Paul’s background will introduce a new perspective into what is a group of world-class officials and coaches, and we believe that he is the right person to take this group to the next level.”
