Jerome Garces will referee the Test between Scotland and South Africa in Edinburgh this November.

Garces took charge of the recent fixture between the Springboks and Wallabies at Newlands on 28 September. The French official made several shocking calls that impacted on both sides.

If not for a premature blow of the whistle, Bryan Habana may have been away for an important try. The Boks were clearly not happy with the referee's management of the set-pieces.

The Wallabies will feel hard done by regarding the sin-binning of flanker Michael Hooper. It meant that they had to play 10 minutes with 14 men.

Alain Rolland will take charge of the Boks' first tour match against Wales in Cardiff on 9 November.

Garces will referee the second fixture in Edinburgh on 17 November, and Wayne Barnes will handle the Boks' final Test against France in Paris on 23 November.
