Rasta progressed from the junior ranks into World Rugby Sevens and Super Rugby in the last couple of years and had stints in Australia and France where he picked up valuable experience. In 2015 he handled the Currie Cup Final and made his Super Rugby debut in 2016. He is now paying full attention to refereeing Super Rugby as he finished refereeing sevens last year as he took charge of 15 Super Rugby matches in the last 3 years. He will be looking to add to that experience in 2019.

Accomplishments:

  • He was the youngest referee ever to referee a Currie Cup Final in 2015
  • He refereed the men’s final at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro and received the Referee of the Year award in 2016
  • He has travelled the world refereeing Sevens and achieved all that there is for a Sevens referee to achieve.. 

Rasta is a man with extensive experience in Sevens and Super Rugby, and has been greatly impactful on the rugby field through his dedication to the game and fair judgement. He has endless opportunities and a bright future ahead of him.
