Officials for November Internationals

World Rugby has unveiled the complete list of officials for the November Internationals. This year’s edition is disappointing from an Americas perspective as powerhouses Argentina are again lacking any appointments.

From the Americas as a whole World Rugby has overlooked the region. The only match of the 40 games taking place to be refereed by an Americas official is uncapped. Canada’s home match against the Maori All Blacks will be refereed by Kurt Weaver of the USA.

From the Americas the six members of the Americas Rugby Championship will all play in November. Argentina and Brazil are to tour Europe, Chile will do so in both Europe and Asia while Uruguay will tour Africa. Canada and the USA are to both play in Europe, the former doing so after the November 03 home game in Vancouver.

The list of appointments for matches involving teams from the Americas is outlined below. Yet to be confirmed are officials for Chile’s matches in Hong Kong.
