Cape Town - New Zealand’s Glen Jackson will referee Saturday’s final Test between the Springboks and England at Newlands (17:05 kick-off).

Jackson will be assisted by his compatriot Ben O’Keeffe and Frenchman Romain Poite, with Simon McDowell from Ireland the television match official (TMO).

O’Keeffe refereed the first Test between the nations in Johannesburg, while Poite was in charge of last Saturday’s encounter in Bloemfontein.

McDowell was appointed as TMO for all three Tests.

The Springboks have an unassailable 2-0 series lead heading into this weekend’s encounter, which, according to reports, will be the final ever Test played at Newlands, South Africa's oldest rugby stadium.

The WP Rugby Union (WPRU) is expected to announce a move to the Cape Town Stadium later this week.
