WELLINGTON – The match officials for Saturday's round of The Rugby Championship, as selected by World Rugby, were confirmed on Tuesday.
The weekend's Rugby Championship kicks-off at Westpac Stadium in Wellington where Australian referee Nic Berry [pictured] is in the middle as the All Blacks host the Springboks.
Berry has grown into one of Super Rugby's emerging referee talents and he refereed a Super Rugby semifinal this year.
He made his test debut in 2016 and has taken charge of nine Tests to date and refereed in this year's 6 Nations tournament.
His performances have been rewarded with a spot in the 12-man Rugby World Cup referee team. The former player will take charge of four pool matches in Japan.
