2017 Rugby Championship match officials

The world governing body announced the match official appointments for the upcoming Rugby Championship competition, with 18 officials and five TMOs taking charge of the 12 matches and the standalone Bledisloe Cup match in October.

Jérôme Garcès will take charge of the opening match of this year’s competition when Australia host New Zealand on 19 August in Sydney.

In what is another important stage in the Rugby World Cup cycle for the further development of elite match officials, New Zealand’s Ben O’Keeffe will  make his tournament debut when he referees South Africa and Australia in Bloemfontein on 30 September.

Frenchman Jerome Garces then takes charge of the whistle when the Springboks face the All Blacks in their final match to be played on 7 October at Newlands in Cape Town.
