Walsh to referee Super rugby final

1:20 pm on 30 July 2012

Australian rugby referee of the year, New Zealander Steve Walsh, will control Satuday night's Super 15 rugby final in Hamilton between the Chiefs and the South African side the Sharks.

Walsh moved to Australia in 2009 after alcohol problems ended his New Zealand career.

He returned to top flight refereeing in 2010 and last week was named Australian rugby's referee of the year.
