Match officials to October 5

Date published: September 30 2014

It’s the last round of the Rugby Championship and South Africa and Argentina host New Zealand and Australia in Johannesburg and Mendoza respectively.

England’s Wayne Barnes will referee the clash between the Springboks and the All Blacks at Ellis Park while Nigel Owens is in charge at Estadio Malvinas Argentinas.

Although the All Blacks have already won the tournament, the energy always perks up when the Springboks play the All Blacks. It is such a special contest, never likely to be humdrum, never just glossed over.

There are full rounds of matches in the various leagues in the southern and northern hemispheres.
