Cape Town - Australia’s Angus Gardner will referee Saturday’s Rugby Championship Test between Argentina and the Springboks in Mendoza (kick-off 21:10 SA time).

New Zealand’s Ben O’Keeffe, who refereed last Saturday’s encounter between the sides in Durban, will be an assistant referee, alongside Ireland’s Andrew Brace.

Another Irishman, Simon McDowell, will be the television match official (TMO).

The earlier game between New Zealand and Australia in Auckland (09:35 SA time) will be refereed by England’s Wayne Barnes.

South Africa’s Jaco Peyper, who refereed last Saturday’s Bledisloe Cup clash in Sydney, will be an assistant referee, alongside England’s Luke Pearce.

As was the case last week, South Africa’s Marius Jonker will be on TMO duty.
