    Cape Town - SANZAR and Game Manager, Lyndon Bray, has confirmed the referee appointments for Round 7 through to Round 10 of this year's Super Rugby season.

    Referee appointments Round 7-10
     
    Bryce Lawrence, who has been sidelined with an injury in recent weeks, will control the opening match of Round 7 on Thursday, April 5, when the Rebels host the Blues at AAMI Park.
     
    Glen Jackson will referee this week’s first New Zealand Conference match on Friday, April 6, with the Hurricanes returning to New Plymouth for the first time since March 2009 when they host the Sharks.
     
    The South African Conference commences with the first of two matches, on Saturday, April 8, with a derby between the Cheetahs and Lions in Johannesburg.
     
    Bray said the appointments were based on thorough analysis and reviews held weekly over the first month and a half of Super Rugby.
     
    “These appointments largely affect the form of referees over the first six weeks,” Bray said.
     
    “The Super Rugby referees undergo weekly reviews and we track the outcomes that every referee achieves on the field, which is primarily measured through the ‘Big 5’ priorities.”
     
    “So far we are happy that the key performance indicators are improving week to week, with consistent improvements, especially with the first hit for scrum engagements.”
     
    The 'Big 5' Priorities are:
     
    Tackle: aim - 70% ball available within 3 seconds
    Scrum: aim - 70% of scrums completed on the first hit
    Ball in Play: aim - 35-40 minutes per game
    Offside at Ruck: aim - less than 5 per game
    Turnovers at Tackle: aim - 90% accuracy by player & referee
