Super Rugby Round #13 Referees

The referee appointments for Round #13 of the 2019 Super Rugby season are now confirmed.

The seven-match Round 13 kicks-off in Auckland as The Blues take on the in-form Hurricanes who are seeking five wins in a row in a match that will be refereed by Nick Briant. The same evening Angus Gardner will have the whistle for the Rebels versus Reds match in Melbourne, while Rasta Rasivhenge will referee an unusual Friday night match in Pretoria when the Bulls host the tournament leading Crusaders at Loftus Versfeld.

On Saturday in Dunedin, the Highlanders will play the Jaguares from Argentina who will also be seeking a fifth consecutive win. Ben O'Keeffe will be the referee for that match, while Nic Berry will be in the middle in Hamilton for the Chiefs versus Sharks match that is a must win for the home side.  Egon Seconds will be in Johannesburg where the Lions host the Waratahs with both teams desperate for wins to keep their Conference and Finals chances alive. 

The weekend closes in Canberra on Sunday where the Brumbies, keen to maintain top billing in the Australian Conference, take on the Sunwolves who despite their bottom position in the Conference can cause problems for any team.  The referee will be Damon Murphy.
