It's the Final of Super Rugby 2017. That is one of the greatest matches in the rugby world each year and Jaco Peyper has appointed to referee it.

By Paul Dobson, Moonsport

Peyper is the SANZAAR's selection committee's choice as the best Super Rugby referee of 2017 and also the choice of each of the coaches of the teams involved, the Lions and the Crusaders.

All referees would want to congratulate Peyper and wish him well.

The match in Raratonga, the capital of the Cook Islands is not only the start of qualification for the Oceania team to go to the 2019 World Cup but also a rare match. The two countries have met only twice before in Raratonga - in 1985 and 2001.

The winner of this match then plays against an Asian team in the next step towards qualification. They will face the Asia Rugby Championship 2018 winner for a place in the répechage tournament.
