Durban (17:05 kick-off).
Super Rugby referees: Round 7
Gardner will be assisted by Nic Berry and Rodney Bonaparte,
with Marius Jonker back in the television match official (TMO) booth.
Jonker was the centre of controversy a few weeks ago when he
awarded the Sharks a controversial try in their clash against the Stormers at Newlands.
He was given a rest from TMO duty in recent weeks.
Meanwhile, Japan’s Shuhei Kubo will be the referee for the Southern
Kings’ clash against the Bulls in Port Elizabeth on Saturday (19:15).
He will be assisted by Craig Joubert and Archie Sehlako,
with Christie du Preez the TMO.
Another Australian referee - Nic Berry - will be on duty
when the Stormers host the Sunwolves in Cape Town on Friday night (19:00).
He will be assisted by Gardner and AJ Jacobs, with Johan
Greeff the TMO.
South Africa's other team in the competition - the Cheetahs - have bye this weekend.
