    Referee panel:
    Wayne Barnes (England), Stuart Dickinson (Australia), Paul Honiss (New Zealand), Marius Jonker (South Africa), Joel Jutge (France), Jonathan Kaplan (South Africa), Alan Lewis (Ireland), Nigel Owens (Wales), Alain Rolland (Ireland), Tony Spreadbury (England), Steve Walsh (New Zealand), Chris White (England).

    Oh That is good, I do not see Goddard there which is good in my eyes.

    Spreadbury in my eyes is probably the best referee there is.

    Wayne Barnes I have never seen much of. So i don't know what he is like?

    Looks a stronge pannel though, Hopefully it can be better refereeing then what the Super 14 has had this year, far to inconsistent.

    That looks OK for us. I guess we'll just need nothing to go to the TMO against Fiji!
