Cape Town - The International Rugby Board has confirmed that Bryce Lawrence has withdrawn from refereeing the Tri-Nations match between Australia and South Africa in Brisbane on July 24.

The experienced New Zealander has sustained a knee injury and will be replaced by Ireland's George Clancy who will take charge of his first Tri Nations match.

Clancy, who refereed the first Test between New Zealand and Wales last month, has taken charge of 11 Tests since making his IRB panel debut in 2006.
