The match is at the RDS Arena in Dublin between Leinster and Munster – a match which could easily have been the final of Europe's Champions Cup.

This is a most important appointment for Berry who was, surprisingly, dropped from, Super Rugby's panel.

But his career has been resurrected this year when he and Quinton Immelman became Pro14 referees – as the Cheetahs and the Southern Kings joined the European the competition.

This will be the first time a South African has refereed such a match in Northern Hemisphere club competition.

Stuart Berry, who is 35 years of age, was born in Durban and started refereeing when he was still at Hillcrest High School in Durban.

He started refereeing Currie Cup matches in 2007, Super Rugby in 2012 and Test rugby in 2013, when the first of his 11 Tests was one between Japan and the All Blacks.

John Lacey of Ireland will referee the other semifinal in Glasgow on Friday.
