The match officials for the second round of the 2014 Super Rugby tournament
have been released although one of the officials will have to be confirmed.

South African referee Jason Jaftha was originally named as assistant referee
for the Golden Lions vs Stormers this weekend but he is believed to have torn
his anterior cruciate ligament in a Super Rugby warm up.

Jaftha attended the SANZAR referees’ camp in Sydney in January and was in charge
of the Eastern Province Kings vs Lions Super Rugby warm up at Nelson Mandela
Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth earlier this month but only lasted three minutes.

The South African referee could be looking at an operation and a lay-off of
from six to nine months so he could miss the 2014 Super Rugby season.

Jaftha was named as match official for the Sharks vs Bulls opening round but
was replaced by Jaco Peyper who is in charge of the Golden Lions vs Stormers
match this weekend so he cannot replace him this weekend.

This weekend all teams with the exception of the Melbourne Rebels are playing
so there are 7 matches.

Friday has two matches, Saturday has four matches and Sunday has one match.
