Another step closer as the Refs have been announced

The referees for the opening rounds have been announced and as usual the top SA refs are used for non SA games.

I have to question the wisdom and financial impact of flying top SA referee Mark Lawrence to Australia to officiate in an Aussie derby and flying a referee from the ARU, Steve Walsh, to South Africa to referee a South african derby.

South Africa have produced four of the top referees who officiate in the SupeRugby tournament yet we don’t get the benefit of this becasue the wealth has to be spread around thus leaving some SA teams to suck the hindtit with below par Kiwi and Aus referees. The Sharks have once again got Keith Brown, thankfully there has been no sign of Paul Marks.

Bryce Lawrence who had a very good ITM Cup season is rewarded with the opening game of the tournament.
