Arrangements for late Springbok legend Joost van der Westhuizen’s memorial service have been made, reports the Pretoria East Rekord.

It will be held at Loftus Versveld at 12.30pm on Friday, but members of the public were urged to arrive at 10.30am for proceedings to start on time.

According to reports, Joost’s coffin will be present at the memorial service and will be transported to the stadium directly after a private ceremony for the family earlier in the day.

Tributes to Joost will be performed by some of his favourite South African artists, and a host of speakers will be present.
