The referees for this week's Super Rugby semi-finals have been announced.

Craig Joubert, who oversaw the World Cup final last year, will take charge when the Chiefs meet the Crusaders in Hamilton on Friday.

In the other semi-final, Steve Walsh will officiate the match between the Stormers and Sharks in Cape Town on Saturday.

Sanzar game manager Lyndon Bray said Joubert and Walsh had been the two best performing referees and one of the two will also officiate the final.
