Now that we know who the final four is in this Rugby World Cup of 2019 we now know who the men in the middle will be.

Nigel Owens will take charge of the England v New Zealand clash and Jérôme Garcès will take control of the test between Wales and South Africa.

Owens will be assisted by Romain Poite and Pascal Gaüzère and Marius Jonker as TMO.

Garcès will have Wayne Barnes and Ben O’Keeffe as assistant referees and Ben Skeen as the TMO.

According to World Rugby the selection is based on merit after review and performance was done by World Rugby’s match officials selection committee.

World Rugby Chairman Sir Bill Beaumont said: “I would like to congratulate Nigel and Jérôme, the assistant referees and TMOs on their selection for the semi-finals.

“These are the best of the best, supported by a superb team, and we now look forward to compelling semi-finals at International Stadium Yokohama over the weekend.”

World Rugby also confirmed that they did not consider Jaco Peyper for selection this weekend.

Peyper recognises that a picture of him with Wales fans, which appeared on social media after the Wales versus France quarter-final, was inappropriate and he has apologised.
