SANZAAR has announced the referee appointments for Week #12 of the 2018 Super Rugby season. 

The six-match round kicks-off on Friday night in Rotorua as the Chiefs take their match against Jaguares to the regions, where Mike Fraser will have the whistle. On Saturday Nic Berry is in charge of the intriguing battle between the Hurricanes and Lions in Wellington. Jaco Peyper is in Australia to referee the Waratahs versus Blues match that has been moved to Brookvale Oval in Sydney's northern beaches region. Glen Jackson has the whistle for the all South African clash between the Stormers and Bulls in Cape Town that neither team can afford to lose in the race for the finals.
