Dominic Emms

We are sad to announce that popular Wales Rugby League match official Dominic Emms, suddenly died yesterday in his sleep.

Hailing from Newport, Dominic was a match official with Wales Rugby League for over seven years and was a touch judge at many big Wales Rugby League domestic finals.

A valuable member of the Wales Rugby League match officials society and a big fan of all sports, he had recently been doing some voluntary work and was looking forward to watching Warrington v Wigan at the weekend.

He was 36 years old.

We will post more information on this website about his funeral when known.

A minutes silence will be held at Rugby League games in Wales this weekend.
