Tiaan Jonker will take charge of the Absa Under-21 Championship decider while Rasta Rashivenga will referee the Absa Under-19 Championship final game. Pro Legoete will officiate the Absa Currie Cup First Division final featuring the SWD Eagles and the Eastern Province Kings in George on Friday (19h10). He will be assisted by Joey Salmans (AR1) and Reuben Rossouw (AR2).

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