London – Contrary to reports Nigel Owens has not been confirmed as the referee for next Saturday’s Rugby World Cup final.

Media reports circulated on Sunday that the Welsh whistleman had been given the job of handling the showdown between the All Blacks and Wallabies at Twickenham.

According to reports, France’s Jerome Garces had been awarded the bronze medal match between South Africa and Argentina on Friday at the Olympic Stadium.

However, World Rugby moved quickly to dispel the reports, tweeting on Sunday: Match official appointments for RWC2015Final & Bronze match to be considered & announced by the panel tomorrow, contrary to media reports.
