Bryce Butterfield (MAI CA) has been selected by the OJU Referee Commission to be New Zealand’s sole referee at the South Pacific Games currently being held in Samoa.

The Judo is spread over two days, 16-17 July. It’s live on Sky pop up channel 57 and the draw has been posted on the official South Pacific Games website.

13 countries are participating.

The five women’s and seven men’s categories are well represented and there is a men’s and women’s teams event scheduled which no doubt will be hotly contested in the true spirit of island sport
