South African referee Craig Joubert will control the Super Rugby final between the Chiefs and Brumbies in Hamilton on Saturday.

It is understood that Joubert, who officiated in the final of the World Cup between the All Blacks and France in 2011, has been given the nod following his performance in the weekend's semifinal between the Bulls and Brumbies at Loftus Versfeld, won 26-23 by the men from Canberra.

Joubert's assistants are New Zealanders Chris Pollock and Garratt Williamson.

Sydney-based New Zealander Steve Walsh, who refereed the other semifinal between the Chiefs and Crusaders at Hamilton, won 20-19 by the home team, will not be involved.
