    Default RWC QF predictions

    For what it's worth - I think these will be the four main referees for the knockout stages and then they'll choose SF/final referees from that quartet, depending on teams knocked out and referee performances in QFs.

    ENG: AUS
    R: Peyper
    TJs: Williams, O’Keeffe
    TMO: Jonker

    NZL:IRE
    R: Owens
    TJs: Berry, Raynal
    TMO: Hughes

    WAL:FRA
    R: Barnes
    TJ: Pearce, Gardner
    TMO: Kitt

    JPN:RSA
    R: Garces
    TJs: Poite, Gauzere
    TMO: Skeen

    Looks about right.

    I would have Gardiner in favour of Garces.

    I would not give Ben Skeen a TMO gig.

    So none of the ARs are considered to have done a good enough job to be considered for an AR role?

    At the last few tournaments the ARs all go home after the pool stage - I would be surprised if it was any different here.

    I also think one of the impressive up and comers (O'Keeffe, Berry) will get the 3rd place game.

    It's a nice idea - but last time the four refs with the QF did the following four games as well, I think.

    Three of the four did the SFs/final (Barnes, Owens, Garces) but John Lacey did the 3rd place game
