Should Rory Kockott be chosen to play for the Sharks this weekend he will be refereed by Craig Joubert, the referee who reported “We’ve got a viscious punch by 9 Black, I don’t think you’ve got any option but to go RED CARD”.
News 24 reports that Craig Joubert has been entrusted with the whistle in the Super 14 playoff decider between the Sharks and Bulls in Durban.
The clash, the final match after 14 rounds of action, will decide the finishing positions heading into the semi-finals.
