Default Re: Help with referee or umpire

All referee.
Umpire for - rowing, bowls, netball, softball, and Australian rules football, sailing. Referee for most other sports.
Re cricket - there are actually two umpires and a referee. if the umpires aren't sure of a decision they can ask the off-field referee to view a video replay and decide. Tennis tournaments also have a referee who can overrule an umpire's decision if necessary.
