Cape Town - Now that the 2014 Rugby Championship has concluded, former referee Jonathan Kaplan has listed his top performances in the tournament - from a referee point of view.
"I have had a good look at the referees in the Championship and think they will concede that there is much room for growth even the best of them had an off day, so I will say the alarm bells are ringing, but not sure if anyone is listening... Yet!" said Kaplan on his RatetheRef website.
Kaplan's Top 3 performances were:Nigel Owens - SA v Australia at Newlands
Jerome Garces - NZ v SA in Wellington
Craig Joubert - Argentina v NZ in Buenos Aires
Kaplan thought Pascal Gaüzère (NZ v Argentina) George Clancy (Australia v SA) and Nigel Owens (Argentina v Australia) had off days.
