Peyper to referee Currie Cup Final

Date published: October 18 2016

Jaco Peyper will officiate his second Currie Cup Final on Saturday when the Free State Cheetahs host the Blue Bulls in Bloemfontein.

Peyer, who last week was named as one of three South African referees on the World Rugby panel for the November Tests, will be supported by assistant referees Jaco van Heerden and Cwengile Jadezweni and Television Match Official (TMO) Marius Jonker. 

Peyer took charge of his first Currie Cup Final in 2012 between Western Province and the Sharks, which the Capetonians won 25-18.

Lourens van der Merwe and Paul Mente will double up as the Assistant Referees for the U19 and U21 Finals, with Johan Greeff named as the TMO.
