Peyper to referee final

Jaco Peyper will officiate Saturday's Vodacom Super Rugby final between the Hurricanes and Highlanders in Wellington.

Sanzar announced on Tuesday that Peyper will be joined by compatriot Craig Joubert and New Zealand's Glen Jackson as his assistants, while Ben Skeen from New Zealand will serve as the TMO.

Meanwhile, 1,700 temporary seats will be erected at the Westpac Stadium for Saturday's first all-New Zealand final since 2006 as the first batch of 26,000 tickets made available on Monday sold out in 59 seconds.
