In 1930 George Woodroffe coached the Waihou School Rugby team which won the local competition.

George played three games for the Thames Valley senior representative team that year. He was a wing forward playing out of the Hot Springs club. After being thrashed 30-0 by Waikato Thames Valley played Bay of Plenty twice – losing 6-8 in Waihi and winning 7-6 in Tauranga. In the match reports of his games for Thames Valley and Te Aroha George is often mentioned very positively and he was obviously a very talented player.

George became a first-class referee in the Bay of Plenty when he controlled Bay of Plenty’s match against King Country in 1954. He was appointed to a further four first- class games including Thames Valley’s win over NZ Māori in Thames the following year.

George Woodroofe died in 1965 at Rotorua. In his honour a trophy is presented each year to the Bay of Plenty referee gaining the highest marks in the NZ law Exam.
