Duty Ref 541 - Jaco Peyper

Rugby in South Africa is gradually moving out of summer sloth and getting ready for action. The same is true for referees, who will be heading off to their camp later this month with the prospect of fitness tests. Jaco Peyper, one of the world's best referees, is taking time to answer readers' questions.

Duty Ref 540 - Lourens van der Merwe

Still an active referee, though he is lately more inclined to sit up in the TMO box than on his feet down on the field, Lourens van der Merwe was recently elected the chairman of the Free State Referees' Society, a man who has done much for refereeing in South Africa.

Duty Ref 539 - Jaco van Heerden

Jaco van Heerden is a busy man - husband and father, practising advocate and referee much in demand. On Sunday he was at Loftus Versfeld for a Currie Cup match and this week he is in Bloemfontein when the Cheetahs play the Blue Bulls. Busy though he is, he still has time to answer readers' questions.
