SANZAAR has confirmed the rescheduled Rugby Championship kick-off times while World Rugby has announced the referee appointments.

Following the recent announcements on the rescheduled Rugby Championship tournament match schedule, SANZAAR can now confirm the kick-off times for all remaining matches.

SANZAAR CEO, Brendan Morris said, "This is an exciting announcement as it confirms a first for international rugby with a series of four double-header weekends of top quality rugby action."

"It is a unique opportunity for Queensland rugby fans and indeed the global broadcast audience to watch the best players and teams go head-to-head in consecutive matches at the same venue on the same day, across the four weekends."

"Our thanks go to our rights-holding host broadcasters - Nine and Stan Sport, Sky NZ, SuperSports and ESPN - for their flexibility and assistance in delivering this match schedule which is an exciting innovation for rugby broadcasts in the southern hemisphere," added Morris.
