Match Officials Confirmed For Champions Cup Quarter Finals

Men in the middle.

European Champions Cup rugby returns this weekend with four mouth-watering quarter final match-ups.

Up first we’ve got some Friday Night Lights with Scarlets hosting Top 14 fliers La Rochelle at Parc y Scarlets. England’s Luke Pearce will take charge of that encounter.

House of Rugby is back with a brand new URC show – fronted by RugbyLAD founder Jason Hennessy and Ireland international Megan Williams. Follow and subscribe to it HERE.

Next up it’s Munster hosting French giants, and three-time champions, Toulon. Nigel Owens is set referee that clash, with fellow Welshmen Ben Whitehouse and Ian Davies set to assist him.

Jérôme Garcès will referee Leinster’s clash with Saracens.

Englishman Wayne Barnes will take charge of the all-French affair between Clermont and Racing, while Jérôme Garcès will be the man in the middle for Leinster’s quarter final match-up with holders Saracens at the Aviva.
