BRISBANE – New Zealand’s Glen Jackson will referee the Rugby Championship match between South Africa and hosts Australia in Brisbane on Saturday.

Jackson is one of Sanzar's most experienced Super Rugby referees and has now refereed 27 Test matches.

In the earlier match, French referee Pascal Gauzere will take charge of the match between New Zealand and Argentina at Trafalgar Park, in Nelson.

It is the first Test match to be held at the venue since it hosted three Rugby World Cup (RWC) matches in 2011. 

Gauzere refereed at the 2015 RWC in England and is a regular in the Six Nations tournament. Earlier this year in June he refereed the Third Test between the Wallabies and Ireland in Sydney.
