Kaplan, Lawrence and Dickinson to referee Super 14 play-off matches

6:30 am on 16 May 2009

A referee from each nation will control the Super 14 rugby play-off matches later this month.

Jonathan Kaplan of South Africa, the most experienced Test referee in the world, will blow the whistle in the final on May 30th.

Bryce Lawrence of New Zealand and Stuart Dickinson of Australia will be in charge of the two semi-finals the previous weekend.

If a semi-final is hosted in South Africa, Lawrence will in all likelihood be asked to officiate in that game.
