World Rugby has confirmed the match official appointments for this weekend’s Bledisloe Cup match between New Zealand and Australia and the opening three rounds of The Rugby Championship.

The cross-border competition organisers and World Rugby continue to adapt and action contingencies due to the evolving and challenging global pandemic. Travel for the teams and match officials, along with quarantine requirements have resulted in a combination of neutral and non-neutral appointments for the fixtures.
