Man in the middle: Steve Walsh

Steve Walsh and Craig Joubert will be the men with the whistles for this weekend's Super Rugby semi-finals.

Walsh will take charge of the all-New Zealand clash between the Chiefs and the Crusaders in Waikato on Saturday while Joubert will officiate the Brumbies' visit to Pretoria to face the Bulls.
