    2015-03-04 11:31

    Cape Town - Johan Greeff is back as television match official (TMO) for the Super Rugby clash between the Cheetahs and Bulls.

    Greeff copped heavy criticism after making a couple of controversial decisions in the Bulls' 43-35 win over the Sharks at Loftus Versfeld last weekend.

    But he has again been appointed as TMO for the Bulls' clash against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein this Saturday.

    Stuart Berry will be the referee for the match at Free State Stadium, while Jaco van Heerden - who was the referee in the Bulls-Sharks clash - will be an assistant referee alongside Lourens van der Merwe.

    Saturday's other South African derby between the Stormers and Sharks at Newlands will be refereed by Jaco Peyper.

    Peyper will be assisted by Quinton Immelman and Cwengile Jadezweni, with Deon van Blommestein on TMO duty.

    In the other match involving a South African team, Matt O'Brien will take charge of the Lions' clash against the Blues at North Harbour Stadium. He will be assisted by Ben O'Keeffe and Brendon Pickerill, with Glen Newman the TMO.

    Another South African referee in action is Marius van der Westhuizen, who will referee the clash between the Brumbies and Force in Canberra on Friday.
