Cape Town - Jaco Peyper will referee his fourth Currie Cup final in seven seasons when Western Province host the Sharks at Newlands in Cape Town on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 16:00

It will be the third consecutive Currie Cup final appointment for the 38-year-old Peyper. 

Peyper, who took charge of the final last year in Durban, and in 2016 in Bloemfontein, will be assisted by AJ Jacobs and Cwengile Jadezweni, while Shaun Veldsman will handle TMO duties.

Peyper’s first final was between the same two coastal sides, in 2012 in Durban.
