Duty Ref 553: Marius van der Westhuizen


Marius van der Westhuizen is a top referee and a shock omission from the World Cup's list of referees - not the only one, but certainly one. But he carries on refereeing Super Rugby and is kind enough to answer readers' questions.

Duty Ref 552 - Jaco Peyper

Jaco Peyper is one of the very best referees in the world, certainly a referee to learn from, for refereeing his way is an art. Here he takes time out from buzzing about the world to answer readers' questions - a goodly bunch of them.

Duty Ref 551 - Jaco Peyper

Just back from refereeing the Six Nations match between Wales and England in Cardiff, and doing it excellently, and even more recently back from Durban and the Super Rugby match between the Sharks and the Stormers, Jaco Peyper grabs a gulp of breath and answers readers' questions.

Duty Ref 550 - Lourens van der Merwe

In his more active days, Lourens van der Merwe was a Test referee. Now he is more sedentary as a TMO. He was teaching at Grey College and the chairman of the Free State Referees' Society. Then he moved to Klerksdorp as the deputy principal of Hoërskool Wesvalia with plenty to keep him busy. But he is already involved in the Leopards Referees' Society and, bless him, he is always ready to answer readers' questions.
