SANZAAR have released the officials for the 2019 Super rugby grand final and Jaco Peyper starts the action this weekend in Christchurch when the Crusaders host the Jaguares.
This will be the Jaguares first-ever Super rugby final appearance while the Crusaders be contesting their 14th Super rugby final.
The Crusaders will also be aiming for a tenth title and a hat-trick of three titles in a row.
Should the Crusaders retain their title it will be the second time that they have won three titles in a row as they won their first three finals (1998 Auckland, 1999 Dunedin & 2000 Canberra) – all away from home.
Jaco Peyper has already refereed two Super rugby finals as he was in charge for the 2015 Final between Hurricanes and Highlanders; and the 2017 Final between the Lions and Crusaders.
Peyper took charge of his 100th Super Rugby match in round 8 this year and now has 105 matches behind him.
