A burst appendix suffered by Marius van der Westhuizen has resulted in a number of changes to referee appointments for Saturday’s Super Rugby matches.

Stuart Berry will now take the whistle for Sharks v Crusaders in Durban while Jaco van Heerden will step up to officiate Lions v Bulls in Johannesburg, for which Berry was initially appointed.

In Canberra, a slight injury to Angus Gardner has resulted in James Leckie moving to AR1 and Ed Martin being called in to serve as AR2.

Saturday’s match officials are outlined below with changes from the initial appointments outlined in red.

SANZAR wishes Marius a speedy recovery and hopes to see him back in the middle as soon as possible.
