Johannesburg – Craig Joubert of South Africa has been appointed to referee the Super Rugby final between the Waratahs and the Crusaders in Sydney on Saturday, Sanzar has announced.

It will be the third time that Joubert will officiate in a Super Rugby final.

His first final at this level was in 2010 in Soweto between the Bulls and the Stormers and he also refereed the final in Hamilton last year, between the Chiefs and the Brumbies.

Joubert, who was also the man in the middle in the Rugby World Cup final in New Zealand in 2011, will be assisted by Steve Walsh and James Leckie on the sidelines, and George Ayoub as Television Match Official. – Sapa
