SA rugby ref breaks barrier for women
An achievement to celebrateAndre Watson, the South African Rugby Union's general manager of referees, said Jordaan's achievement was one to celebrate for the entire South African rugby fraternity. "Marlize has grown so much in her career as a referee that we weren't surprised when we were told of her appointment," Watson said. "Last week Marlize refereed the Varsity Cup Young Guns match between the under-20 teams of Kovsies and UP-Tuks, and was very good. In 2012, she also handled two matches in the Absa U19B Tournament with great aplomb.
'Expecting big things'"We're really expecting big things from her and are very proud of her achievement in South America." At the Consur Sevens, Uruguay's men and Brazil's women claimed the final remaining spots at the Rugby World Cup Sevens 2013, which will take place at Moscow's iconic Luzhniki Stadium from 28 to 30 June.
