Joubert to referee 2010 Currie Cup final

The South African Rugby Referees Association (SARRA) have announced that International Test referee Craig Joubert will take charge of the Currie Cup Premier Division final on Saturday, October the 30th.

Joubert is one of South Africa’s most prominent referees and was in charge of the Super 14 final between the Bulls and the Stormers at the Orlando Stadium in Soweto earlier this year.

He will be assisted by Cobus Wessels (AR1) and Christie du Preez (AR2) while Marius Jonker was named as the reserve referee for the final.


Tiaan Jonker will run the Under-21 championship decider while Rasta Rashivenga will referee the Under-19 championship final. Pro Legoete will officiate the Currie Cup First Division final featuring the SWD Eagles and the Eastern Province Kings in George on Friday.


“The blokes have put up their hands and I am pleased that the appointments were done on merit,” SARU’s National Referees Manager Andre Watson told Sport24.


“We had a season were the young guns made their presence felt which augers well for the future. “


“Jason Jaftha, Stuart Berry, Sindile Mayende, Jaco Peyper, Lourens van der Merwe and Joey Salmans of the National Panel proved that we can go into the future with confidence.

“Further down the list, promising referees such as Tiaan Jonker and Rasta Rashivenga are duly rewarded for an outstanding season.”
