Will certainly do. Just checked World Rugby site but nothing out yet. With the 1st international less than 3 weeks away I very much suspect we will get something in the early part of next week

I know it's early, but I love the fact that WR are really looking into the future and next RWC.
I'm pretty sure that we will see the same format as we have seen in previous versions with 12 referees, 7 AR's and 4 TMO's.
The Lion's officials all get some matches before the big games later in the summer, so naturally dominate the key battles.
In the SH it's pretty much set with the big 5 now of Berry, Gardner, Williams, O Keefe & Peyper. The question is will one of Doleman, Fraser, Pickerill, Jacobs, Way or Murphy push for a slot to balance out the NH/SH divide - and as we have seen with the NH dominate the latter appointments.
Rugby Australia has some great up and coming officials, so should Gardner be worried or safe looking at his omission from the Lions tour and only 1 appointment in the middle?
For me, it's interesting that there are more places up for grabs in the NH if the likes of Gauzere, Poite & Carley don't perform in the next few years, we may see a few shocks!!
Fully deserved couple of matches for Amashukeli!
Piardi now settling in to Italy's number 1 and a regular AR role in recent times.
No surprises with the matches for Gauzere, Carley, Pearce & Brace.
Some great matches for Adamson (who now needs to perform on the bigger stage), Dickson (gets another chance and the clear number 4 for WR in England) and Murphy.
Ridley & Foley seemingly pushed in Europe and WR as the next English batch (worried for Maxwell-Keys as he isn't getting a look-in!).
Ruiz must have taken the defence role with Montpellier as his absence says everything.
Surprised with no appointment for Neville, pleased to see Hodnett as TMO and no regular English TMO's out this time.
The one who should be most disappointed in the NH would be Poite - as with Gardner in the SH, should he be worried or safe? as I don't believe we will automatically guarantee 3 referee spots in the next WRC (even though it's in France).
Roll on the Summer!!

Good to see the Welsh boys out as well.
Fingers crossed for Adamson as I think he is a decent ref. Murphy also with a game.

Well my prediction of Gardener, Poite and Williams was 100% wrong! 🤔

Must admit to being a bit surprised with these 3 but delighted to see Raynal in the mix as I have always felt he is vastly underrated. Berry I do like but I still remain unconvinced by OKeefe. But best wishes to all 3.

South Africa v lions test series

ben o Keefe is being replaced by Angus Gardner(no idea on who's in the mix to ref the other 2- raynal? gauzzere? poite?

Brandon pickerel t.m.o has been replaced by Marius jonker( might be a good idea to have a neutral t.m.o for the remaining 2 tests)

Have found confirmation re Jonker but cant seem to see anything about Gardner. Where did you get this from?

All media suggesting O'Keefe was there and from 1 or 2 pictures I have seen certainly looked like him. Not got Sky so got to wait for highlights on C4 at some ungodly hour

OT: unable to comment on any part of the game really as C4 conspired to show just 24 mins highlights

However, definitely was Ben O'Keefe who gets the job of next weeks game.

due to covid related issues Marius jonker is t.m.o for all 3 tests

nick berry refereed the first test

ben o Keefe is refereeing the 2nd test

raynal is refereeing the 3rd and final test with these 3 switching in each test match to be touch judges

sorry about Angus Gardner being involved my apologies
