CHRISTCHURCH – Super Rugby’s most experienced referee, South African Jaco Peyper, will be in charge of Saturday’s 2019 Super Rugby Final between the Crusaders and the Jaguares at the Orangetheory Stadium in Christchurch.
The Crusaders will be playing in their 14th Super Rugby Final, while this is the Jaguares’ first appearance in the climax of the competition.
