    Veldsman back to assume TMO duties

    2015-03-09 10:34

    Cape Town - Shaun Veldsman will be back in the television match official booth this weekend when the Stormers host the Chiefs in a Super Rugby clash.

    Veldsman had been sidelined after he was assaulted in his car following the Stormers' match against the Blues in Cape Town last month.

    He was hospitalised after being stabbed in the lung but has since recovered.

    Jaco Peyper will again be the referee at Newlands this weekend, with Marius van der Westhuizen and Quinton Immelman the assistant referees.

    New Zealander Chris Pollock will referee the South African derby between the Cheetahs and Sharks in Bloemfontein. He will be assisted by Jaco van Heerden and Lourens van der Merwe, with Johan Greeff the TMO.

    In the other match involving a South African team, Nick Briant will referee the Lions' clash against the Crusaders in Christchurch. Ben O'Keeffe and Paul Williams will be the assistant referees, with Chris Wratt the TMO.

    Another South African referee in action is Craig Joubert, who will take charge of the clash between the Highlanders and Waratahs in Dunedin.
