SANZAR has announced the match officials for Saturday's Super Rugby qualifiers, with Jaco Peyper and Jonathan Kaplan handed the jobs.

Lyndon Bray, SANZAR Game Manager, said the appointments were made after a full season analysis of each official, which in turn saw referees rewarded with strong performances.

"We are delighted to announce that Jaco and Jonathan will referee the first matches in this season's Super Rugby Finals Series," he said.

Bray said that the final appointments consider three criteria - the overall performance, accuracy of the big calls and the 'right fit for the game'.

"Referees were reviewed against their overall performance, which takes into consideration their consistency over the whole competition, and form at this latter stage of the competition," he added.
