OnJugger is an international Podcast on everything about Jugger. Coaching, Tournaments and so on.
OnJugger Episode 3. Refereeing, Rules and Sanctions
In this episode of OnJugger we deal with one of the greatest problems facing jugger at the moment. The quality of refereeing, the exploitation of rules and the knowledge that there are no sanctions so malicious players can do what they want with impunity.
Our panel of (Stumpy) Dave Edwards, Jonas Kopka, Kate Foley, (Hot) Dave Keaveney and hosted by Mark Hill discuss and dissect all of the topics. And explain the new Irish reffing system which is being trialled at the moment.
We hope you enjoy the show and please comment, like, share and follow! We need your support!
Here are all the info-graphics from the podcast. We thought we would release these as well to help people understand the new Irish reffing system with sanctions that we are trialling at the moment.
Important to note this system and sanctions are heavily drawn from the current German and Spanish systems with our own new ideas and sanctions added. Which are in turn drawn from rugby sevens and our own experiences playing jugger for the past 13 years.

Current German Refereeing System
The main referees are usually the most experienced players. They stand at the mid points of the pitch and watch channel 1 and 4. The goal referees are usually the least experieneced and stand at opposite corners of the pitch. And they watch channel 2 and 3. But after the inital run in most of gameplay occurs in channels 2 and 3. Which means you have the least experienced players refereeing most of the action.
Irish Refereeing System
With the new irish refreeing system the main referees (usually the most experienced players) are placed at the opposite ends of the pitch. And they watch channels 2 and 3.
The side referees (usually the least experienced players) stand at the mid points of the pitch and watch channels 1 and 4.
We have done this because after the intial run in most of the action happens in channels 2 and 3. So now you will have the most experienced referees watching the most amount of gameplay.

OnJugger Episode 1. The DM is it Important?
Welcome to the the first episode of OnJugger!! We are giving over the entire episode to everything Deutsche Meisterschaft. Seeing as there is a major vote starting on the 23rd April for the possibility to change the name of the tournament and the fact that no club has stepped up to host the tournament. We felt the time was right to air our views and those of juggers from all over the world who have attended the biggest tournament in Jugger.
This is all a labour of love, we have no budget and we are not journalists so try not to be too harsh on us! We will learn from our mistakes and get better in the episodes to come. Enjoy and please subscribe, comment and share!!!
