Cape Town - Pro Legoete will replace Marius van der Westhuizen as the referee for Friday's Currie Cup semi-final between the Blue Bulls and Western Province in Pretoria.

The Blue Bulls will host their arch rivals in the first Premier Division semi-final at Loftus Versfeld at 19:00.

On Saturday, the Golden Lions host the Free State Cheetahs in the second playoff match at Ellis Park in Johannesburg (13:45).
