Rasivhenge was also a rugby sevens referee during the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland.

In 2014, Rasivhenge took a sabbatical from the South African Rugby Union and was recruited by the Australian Rugby Union; he subsequently appeared as an Australian referee in the IRB Sevens World Series.

He returned to South Africa prior to the 2015 Currie Cup Premier Division and signed a contract with SARU until 2019. He refereed eight matches in the 2015 Currie Cup Premier Division and was awarded the final between the Golden Lions and Western Province, in the process becoming the youngest referee ever to do so.

He was also appointed to referee two matches in the French professional leagues in 2015–16 – a Pro D2 match between Béziers and Biarritz and a Top 14 match between Toulouse and Grenoble.

In 2016, Rasivhenge was added to the referees' roster for the 2016 Super Rugby season for the first time.
