SANZAAR has announced the referee appointments for the quarter-finals of Super Rugby. 

The referee appointments for the Super Rugby quarter-finals are merit-based and their selection has included direct input from the Super Rugby coaches.

The Friday night quarter-final is in Wellington where the Hurricanes, the best wild card team after the regular season which gave them a ranking of four, will host the Chiefs who beat them last weekend in Hamilton. The all Kiwi affair will be refereed by Glen Jackson.

On Saturday Mike Fraser will be in charge of the Crusaders versus Sharks match in Christchurch. The Crusaders won the New Zealand conference and were seeded one for the finals series after the regular season, while the Sharks earned their place after beating the Jaguares in the last match of the regular season to edge out the Rebels as eighth seed.

Australian Conference winners the Waratahs host the Highlanders in Sydney where Angus Gardner will be the referee. The last quarter-final is in Johannesburg where Jaco Peyper will referee the Lions, Super Rugby runners-up the last two years, versus the Jaguares who make their Super Rugby quarter-final debut.
