Sorry, but the refresh button cannot be relocated. Why Apple chose to put it at the right of the address bar only the development team could say. For many people it's irritating, and if you're one of us, you can submit your comments to Apple here:
I prefer my refresh button on the left side of the address bar. How can I move it?
As far as I know, you can't.
If I cannot, can someone explain why it is forced over the right?
Easiest way would be to add any page to your bookmarks and choose the bookmark bar. Name it "Refresh" or something, then go to Bookmarks -> Show All Bookmarks and select Bookmarks Bar from the sidebar. Find the page you added and modify the address to be the above snippet without the quotes. Now you can just click that item to reload the page.
and drag it to your Desktop so it becomes a text clipping. Now drag it to your Bookmarks bar, the cursor will have a green + mark, drop it where you want it. The Bookmark name sheet drops down, name it Refresh.
