Aussie ref for All Blacks v Boks
CAPE TOWN - Australia’s Angus Gardner will referee Saturday’s Rugby Championship Test between the All Blacks and Springboks in Christchurch. Kick-off is scheduled for 09:35 (SA time). Gardner will be assisted by Frenchman Pascal Gauzere and Italy’s Marius Mitrea, while Australia’s George Ayoub will be on television match official duty.
Australia’s match against Argentina later in Perth (12:05 SA time) will be refereed by England’s Wayne Barnes.
Barnes will be assisted by Welshman Nigel Owens and New Zealand’s Nick Briant, with another Kiwi - Ben Skeen - in the TMO booth.
Meanwhile, you have to go back all the way to 1965 to find the last time that South Africa won a Test against the All Blacks in Christchurch.
The Boks won 19-16 that day, outscoring New Zealand by four tries to three. — Sport24.
