    Stormers get Joubert - in NZ

    2014-03-11 07:39
    Cape Town - The Stormers will have a familiar face in charge of their Vodacom Super Rugby clash against the two-time defending champion Chiefs in Hamilton on Friday.

    Kick-off is at 08:35 SA time.

    SANZAR has confirmed that South Africa's Craig Joubert will be the man with the whistle at the Waikato Stadium.

    Those sceptical rugby followers - and fans of neutral officials - will no doubt wonder how the Stormers will have managed to land a compatriot in charge of such a crucial match - half way around the world.

    Meanwhile, three other South African referees will take charge of matches in Week 5.

    Jaco Peyper, under fire for a series of "rubbish" decisions in the match between the Sharks and Lions in Durban last Saturday, will take charge of the Australian derby between the Brumbies and Waratahs in Canberra (Saturday, March 15 at 10:40) while Stuart Berry will handle affairs in the Lions v Blues clash at Ellis Park (Saturday, March 15 at 15:00).

    Lourens van der Merwe will officiate the final match of the round at Kings Park between the table-topping Cell C Sharks and the Reds (Saturday, March 15 at 17:05).

    The other matches this weekend will be refereed as follows:

    James Leckie: Rebels v Crusaders (Friday, March 14 at 08:35)
    Angus Gardner: Hurricanes v Cheetahs (Saturday, March 15 at 05:35)
    Glen Jackson: Highlanders v Force (Saturday, March 15 at 08:35)
