Jaco Peyper giving free kick

Jaco Peyper: NZ v Australia

Jaco Peyper will referee the Rugby Championship Test between New Zealand and Australia and Steve Walsh will handle South Africa against Argentina.

After last week's introduction at Test level, the new scrum laws have caused plenty of debate which means referees will especially be subject to scrutiny in matches this weekend.

In other action, Canada and the USA do battle in a World Cup qualifier and there will be plenty of action in the Top 14, ITM Cup and Currie Cup competitions.
