Peyper gets Currie Cup Final
Jaco Peyper has been rewarded for his outstanding performances in 2012 by being named as referee for Saturday’s Currie Cup final in Durban.
Peyper, who made his test debut at Tier 1 international level in 2012, will take charge of the match between The Sharks and DHL Western Province.
It is his first Currie Cup final appointment.
"The appointment was made on merit as Jaco has had an outstanding season," said Andre Watson, SARU GM: Referees.
"The decision was based on feedback over the season from provinces and from our own assessments. All appointments for finals are done on merit; this is SARU’s showcase weekend in terms of domestic rugby and we owe it to all stakeholders to provide the best possible service."
SARU also announced that the U21 and U19 Cup finals will be refereed by Lourens van der Merwe and Rasta Rashivenge respectively. Craig Joubert will take charge of the second leg of the Currie Cup promotion/relegation decider in Port Elizabeth on Friday.
