Joubert for DHL Stormers again

PUBLISHED: March 1, 2016

Experienced referee Craig Joubert will oversee his second consecutive DHL Stormers game this weekend after being appointed to referee the Vodacom Super Rugby clash with the Toyota Cheetahs in Bloemfontein.

Joubert had the whistle for the DHL Stormers’ opening game which saw them beat the Vodacom Bulls 33-9 at DHL Newlands last Saturday and will be on duty at Toyota Stadium on Saturday, March 5.

The DHL Stormers will be looking to build on their bonus point win in the opening round, while the Free State Cheetahs will be hoping to bounce back from a one-point defeat against the Jaguares.
