Referees appointed for November internationals

The International Rugby Board has announced the match official appointments
for upcoming November internationals with Jaco Peyper taking charge of the Wallabies
clash against the Barbarians at Twickenham.

Appointments were made by the IRB Match Official Selection Committee at its
recent meeting in Dublin and follow a detailed review of recent performances
during the June international window, The Rugby Championship and other matches.

South Africa’s Craig Joubert will kick off a busy month of Tests as teams
and officials begin the countdown to Rugby World Cup 2015, when he takes charge
of the New Zealand v USA fixture at Soldier Field in Chicago on November 1.

Steve Walsh will be the man in the middle for England’s match with the
Springboks and Nigel Owens will officiate at Stade de France when Les Bleus
take on Australia, as well as refereeing New Zealand’s visit to Twickenham.

Wayne Barnes has been appointed to Wales v New Zealand in Cardiff, while Ireland
v Australia in Dublin will be refereed by Glen Jackson.

Jerome Garces will be in charge when the Wallabies take on England
and will be in Padova on November 22 to referee Italy v South Africa.

IRB High Performance Match Officials Manager Joel Jutge said, “The
selection system allows for movement in and out of the match official panel
based on form. It rewards the top performers and young referees who have graduated
through the performance pathway. ”

“As always, referees are accountable for the quality of their overall
performances and these appointments have been made following careful consideration
of all recent matches. With Rugby World Cup 2015 less than a year away, performances
are being assessed and scrutinised with that tournament in mind. ”

The IRB Match Official Selection Committee, chaired by John Jeffrey, comprises
former elite referees Lyndon Bray (SANZAR), Andrew Cole (SANZAR), Donal Courtney
(European Professional Club Rugby), Clayton Thomas (Six Nations) and IRB High
Performance Match Officials Manager Joel Jutge.

The committee meets four times a year and makes selections for the next international
window with all performances reviewed in advance of selection.
