Super Rugby moves undeviatingly onwards and already we are at Rounds 9 and 10 when in the old days of sporting seasons the rugby season would just be beginning in the Southern Hemisphere.

There is a new referee appointed - Matt O'Brien, a pharmacist from Queensland where he went playing rugby as a young man and started a business career and a refereeing career. But he is really from Invercargill at the end of New Zealand where his father lives, a famous referee - Paddy O'Brien. Like Marius van der Westhuizen who refereed his first Super Rugby match in Round 8, O'Brien came into prominence on the IRB's Sevens circuit.

There is a new TMO appointed - Marius Jonker, a much-capped Test referee.
