Garcès for the Final
SHARE

Jérôme Garcès of France has been appointed to referee the Final of the 2019 Rugby World Cup between England and South Africa in Yokohama on Saturday, 2 November 2019.

It is the ninth Rugby World Cup final and he is the eighth referee to referee one. At the last final, in 2015, Graces was an assistant referee to Nigel Owens.

The assistants for the 2019 final are Romain Poite of France and Ben O’Keeffe of New Zealand.

Ben Skeen of New Zealand is the TMO. There were four TMOs appointed to the World Cup – two from England, one from South Africa and Skeen of New Zealand. presumably the other three were not eligible because their countries were playing.

The second big match of 2019 is the third-place play-off between New Zealand anbd Wales, to be played at Tokyo Stadium in Friday, 1 November 2019. The referee for that match is Wayne Barnes with Jaco Peyper of South Africa and Pascal Gaüzère of France as his assistants. The TMO is Marius Jonker of South Africa.

Like Garcès, Barnes was an assistant referee in 2015’s final.
