    Cape Town - Australia’s Angus Gardner will referee Saturday’s South African Super Rugby derby between the Sharks and Lions in Durban (17:05 kick-off).

    Super Rugby referees: Round 7

    Gardner will be assisted by Nic Berry and Rodney Bonaparte, with Marius Jonker back in the television match official (TMO) booth.

    Jonker was the centre of controversy a few weeks ago when he awarded the Sharks a controversial try in their clash against the Stormers at Newlands.

    He was given a rest from TMO duty in recent weeks.

    Meanwhile, Japan’s Shuhei Kubo will be the referee for the Southern Kings’ clash against the Bulls in Port Elizabeth on Saturday (19:15).

    He will be assisted by Craig Joubert and Archie Sehlako, with Christie du Preez the TMO.

    Another Australian referee - Nic Berry - will be on duty when the Stormers host the Sunwolves in Cape Town on Friday night (19:00).

    He will be assisted by Gardner and AJ Jacobs, with Johan Greeff the TMO.

    South Africa's other team in the competition - the Cheetahs - have bye this weekend.
