Cape Town - New Zealand’s Ben O’Keeffe will referee Saturday’s second Test between the Springboks and France in Durban.

O’Keefe’s compatriot, Glen Jackson - who refereed last Saturday’s first Test in Pretoria - will be an assistant referee at Kings Park, as well as Australia’s Angus Gardner, while England’s Rowan Kitt will again be on television match official (TMO) duty.

Meanwhile, Gardner will be in charge of the final Test at Ellis Park in Johannesburg the following week (June 24).

The Boks have a 1-0 series advantage courtesy of winning the first Test at Loftus Versfeld 37-14.
