There are, it would seem, no second chances for officials in the Super XV.
Three of them were stood down for next week’s fixtures, following complaints from players and coaches.
Lourens van der Merwe, Francisco Pastrana and James Leckie will all have the weekend off.
Pastrana was criticized for his handling of the game between the Cheetahs and the Blues, while Van der Merwe’s performance in the Western Force’s win over the Chiefs has earned him a break.
Leckie was not on duty in Round 6, last officiating over the Waratahs’ defeat of the Rebels.
Referees boss Lyndon Bray told Super Rugby the move indicated, "who has performed to expectation and who has not."
