Jaco Peyper will referee Saturday’s Vodacom Super Rugby derby between the Lions and Stormers in Johannesburg.
There are five matches on Saturday with proceedings starting in Tokyo where Angus Gardner (pictured) will referee the Sunwolves, coming off a bye, against the Chiefs who are looking for their third win after a strong start to the season. Next up, the Hurricanes host the impressive Sharks in Wellington with the visitors also looking for their third win out of three. Ben O’Keeffe has the whistle in that clash.
There is just the one match in South Africa in round three when the Lions host the unbeaten Stormers in Johannesburg, with Jaco Peyper refereeing.
The weekend again closes in Buenos Aires where the Jaguares take on the Reds at Amalfitani Stadium. Federico Anselmi will be the referee.
