Berry will be assisted by a trio of South Africans - Marius van der Westhuizen and AJ Jacobs as assistant referees - and Marius Jonker as television match official (TMO).

Earlier in the day, South Africa's Rasta Rasivhenge will referee the Lions' match against the Highlanders at Ellis Park (15:05).

Rasivhenge will be assisted by compatriots Jaco Peyper and Griffin Colby, with Willie Vos the TMO.
