Referees to 1 December 2018

The colourful, extravagant presents of November’s Tests have been put away now and rugby seems more ordinary, more normal but still intensely competitive for those on northern fields.

The first matches of World Rugby’s Sevens series for 2018-19 starts in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. There are two tournaments – women’s and men’s.

At Twickenham, Argentina play the Barbarians, laced with South African players. Johnny Lacey is the referee, his farewell to international refereeing after a grand career.

The PRO 14 is back in action. South Africa’s Cwengile Jadezweni, who has Test and Currie Cup experience, will be refereeing just his second PRO14 match, his first in Europe.
