CAPE TOWN – Glen Jackson, the New Zealand referee who was roundly criticised for awarding a dodgy penalty to the Highlands last week, will again officiate a fixture involving the Bulls who go up against the Stormers in Saturday’s South African Super Rugby derby at Newlands (start at 3.05pm).

Jackson refereed the Bulls’ 29-28 home loss to the Highlanders in Pretoria last week.

He copped criticism in some quarters for a controversial penalty he awarded the Highlanders late in the game but has again been entrusted with the refereeing duties.

The six-match round kicks-off on Friday night in Rotorua as the Chiefs take their match against Jaguares to the regions, where Mike Fraser will have the whistle. 

On Saturday Nic Berry is in charge of the intriguing battle between the Hurricanes and Lions in Wellington. 

South African Jaco Peyper is in Australia to referee the Waratahs versus Blues match that has been moved to Brookvale Oval in Sydney's northern beaches region.
