    Egon Seconds and Stuart Berry will be his assistants, with Shaun Veldsman in the TMO booth.

    The final game on Saturday (21:40 SA time) between the Jaguares and Lions in Buenos Aires will be refereed by New Zealand’s Nick Briant.

    Briant will be assisted by compatriot Paul Williams and Argentina’s Damian Schneider, with home TMO Santiago Borsani on duty.
