Cape Town - While Springboks fans will be relieved to see the back of French referee Romain Poite, Steve Walsh lies in wait at Twickenham next Saturday...

Poite raised the ire of several Bok fans during Saturday's 29-15 defeat to Ireland at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, although it must be said, the Boks were the masters of their own demise.

Australian Walsh will handle matters in Saturday's Test against an England side which went down 24-21 to the All Blacks.

Walsh will be assisted by France's Jérôme Garcès and New Zealander Nick Briant, while Eric Gauzins of France will be the 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.
