Cape Town - Steve Walsh will become the referee with the most Springbok Tests behind his name when he takes charge of their clash against England at Twickenham on Saturday.

According to Netwerk24, New Zealand-born Walsh will take charge of a Springbok Test for the 18th time on Saturday, surpassing Ireland's Alain Rolland.

The Boks have an impressive record with Walsh as referee, winning 13 of the Tests he's taken charge of, losing only once and sharing the spoils on three occasions.

The only losing Test with Walsh in charge was against England at Twickenham in 2006 (23-21), which was the last time England beat the Springboks.

On Saturday, Walsh will be assisted by France's Jérôme Garcès and New Zealander Nick Briant, while Eric Gauzins of France will be the Television Match Official (TMO).

The Boks' remaining Tests - against Italy and Wales - will be refereed by Garcès and John Lacey of Ireland, respectively.

Kick-off at Twickenham on Saturday is at 16:30 (SA time).
