Referee’s Named For Munster & Leinster’s Champions Cup Quarter Finals
Two excellent appointments.
Nigel Owens will be the man in the middle when Leinster Rugby face Wasps in the Quarter-Finals of the Champions on 1st April.

JP Doyle will take charge of the Thomond Park showdown where former champions Munster and Toulouse go head-to-head, also on the 1st April. The game is a repeat of the 2014 quarter final and both sides lead the way in reaching the knock-out stages of the competition on 16 occasions.
On Sunday, April 2nd, France’s Jerome Garces will be in the middle for the meeting of holders Saracens and knockout first-timers Glasgow Warriors at 1pm.
Finally, Wayne Barnes of England has been appointed for the all-TOP 14 confrontation between number one seeds ASM Clermont Auvergne and RC Toulon at Stade Marcel-Michelin at 4.15pm.
