NZ referees dumped over TMO mistakes

7:54 am on 17 July 2012

New Zealand rugby officials Vinnie Munro and Mike Fraser appear to have paid the price for questionable calls they made in the television match official's box in the final round of Super Rugby.

Munro and Fraser have unsurprisingly missed out on referee spots for this weekend's playoffs after allowing tries that shouldn't have been given.

South African Jaco Peyper will referee the Crusaders-Bulls knockout in Christchurch with three local officials working the touchlines and the TMO's box - Keith Brown and Glen Jackson are the assistants and the video duties go to Garratt Williamson.
