You might not have seen this a few days ago if you only caught up on the highlights of Samoa vs New Zealand, but it was a pretty funny moment in the first half. More so because referee Jaco Peyper found it absolutely hilarious to see his touch judge get hit on the head by the ball.
Peyper has been a busy man of late, refereeing the Super Rugby Final, and then this historic clash in Apia. He will also take charge of the opening match of the Rugby World Cup on 18 September, between England and Fiji at Twickenham.
Unfortunately there wasn’t a good shot of Peyper laughing, but it’s quite funny nevertheless.
