Super Rugby Week #18 Referees

SANZAAR has announced the referee appointments for Week #18 of the 2018 Super Rugby season. 

Week 18 kicks off on Friday with a Kiwi derby between the number one ranked Crusaders and the Highlanders in Christchurch. Brendon Pickerill has the whistle in a match the visitors need to win to have any chance of a home quarter-final. The same night Paul Williams is in Brisbane where the Rebels need to beat the Reds to ensure a finals berth. Rasta Rasivhenge is in Hamilton for the Chiefs versus Brumbies while Ben O'Keeffe is in charge of the Hurricanes versus Blues match in Wellington where the home side will be desperate to get back to winning ways. Egon Seconds takes charge of the Bulls versus Jaguares in Pretoria where the visitors will be looking for their eighth win in a row and top place in the South African conference. Jaco Peyper is the referee for the South African derby between the Stormers and Sharks in Cape Town where the revitalised Sharks will need a win to keep their finals hopes alive.
