End Of Year ToursFrance’s Jérôme Garcès will referee the Scotland v Springboks Test at Murrayfield in Edinburgh on Sunday.

Kick-off is at 17:00.


Both the Boks and Wales suffered at the hands of Ireland’s Alain Rolland in their Test last weekend, and will welcome the sight of Garcès who took control of the Boks’ recent Rugby Championship victory over Australia at Newlands in late September.

In other matches scheduled for the weekend, South Africa’s Craig Joubert will be the man in the middle in the England v New Zealand clash at Twickenham.

Meanwhile, the world’s most capped Test referee, South Africa’s Jonathan Kaplan will be handling his 70th – and likely last – Test in Windhoek between Namibia and Kenya.
