Springboks – Jaco Peyper Explains His Role In Camp


Former Test referee Jaco Peyper, who is with the Springbok squad in his capacity as national laws advisor, also described his experience as being a new member of the Springbok management team as exciting and said although his role was new, it would evolve with time.

“My role started with me spending time with the team management and the decision to build on the respect around refereeing as a team and around the world,” said Peyper.

“My job is mainly to help the coaching staff coach accurately with an eye on the key focus areas and to assist with the alignment following matches.

“It’s clear what World Rugby wants in terms of the guidelines they put in place, and as a team we would like to avoid conceding penalties, so the job will definitely get a bit more detailed as we go along.”
