Super14 match officials for round 3

Referee Stuart Dickinson has been forced to withdraw from the Super 14 match between the Cheetahs and the Highlanders in Bloemfontein so his place will be taken by Pro Legoete of South Africa.

The change has also meant that Andrew Lees of Australia will no longer be an assistant referee, his place taken by Cobus Wessels while Craig Joubert, who is refereeing at Newlands the night before, will take the place of Stu Berry as an assistant referee.

Last weekend Pro Legoete was an assistant referee in Durban when the Sharks played the Cheetahs and replaced Jonathan Kaplan at half-time when a virus stopped Kaplan’s performance.

The transition from Kaplan to Legoete was a smooth one and the match proceeded without problems, in fact with a calm, confident performance by the man refereeing a Super Rugby match for the first time.

He is, according to SA Referees currently one of the top six referees in South Africa.
