    Jonker back in TMO hot seat at Newlands

    2016-03-15 08:48

    Cape Town - Marius Jonker will be back in the television match official (TMO) hot seat when the Stormers host the Brumbies in a Super Rugby clash at Newlands on Saturday (19:15 kick-off).

    Super Rugby referee appointments: Round 4

    In last Saturday’s South African derby between the Stormers and Sharks at Newlands, Jonker made a controversial decision when he instructed the referee to award the Sharks a penalty try.

    Jonker deemed that Stormers flank Siya Kolisi kicked the ball out of Sharks scrumhalf Cobus Reinach’s hands as he attempted to dot the ball down.

    The Sharks went on to win 18-13.

    Jonker defended himself afterwards, but there appears to be varying opinions on whether he made the right call or not.

    But Jonker will again be the TMO for the clash at Newlands, with South Africa’s Jaco Peyper appointed to referee the match.

    Peyper will be assisted by Jaco van Heerden and Cwengile Jadezweni.

    - Stuart Berry will referee Saturday’s SA derby between the Lions and Cheetahs in Johannesburg (17:05), with Kiwi Glen Jackson and Rasta Rasivhenge his assistants. Johan Greeff will be the TMO.

    - Australia’s William Houston will referee the Kings’ clash against the Crusaders in Christchurch on Saturday (08:35 SA time). He will be assisted by Brendon Pickerill and Angus Mabey, with Chris Wratt the TMO.

    KIWI REF AT LOFTUS

    Jackson, meanwhile, will be the referee for Friday night’s SA derby between the Bulls and Sharks at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria (19:00).

    He will be assisted by Berry and Rasivhenge, with Willie Vos on TMO duty.
