Walsh to referee England game

England's Rugby World Cup quarter-final against France will be refereed by Steve Walsh, tournament organisers have announced.

South Africa's Craig Joubert will take charge of Saturday's first northern hemisphere showdown, between Wales and RBS 6 Nations rivals Ireland in Wellington.

The following day, Welsh official Nigel Owens will be the man in the middle for the All Blacks' clash with Argentina at Auckland's Eden Park while New Zealand official Bryce Lawrence will whistle South Africa's highly-anticipated appointment with Australia.
