Nigel Owens has been appointed to referee the Guinness PRO14 Final between Glasgow Warriors and Leinster Rugby at Glasgow’s Celtic Park this Saturday.
The Welsh official will be assisted by John Lacey (IRFU) and Mike Adamson (SRU) as he holds the whistle for his 180th appearance in the Championship. Ian Davies (WRU) has been appointed as Television Match Official.
Owens, who is the most experienced official in the Guinness PRO14, takes charge of his sixth decider and will also be refereeing the 13th major final of his career having also been appointed to six European Cup Finals and the 2015 Rugby World Cup Final.
The decision to appoint the officials was based primarily on performance and capability. Owens, Lacey and Adamson have been the best performing match officials during the 2018/19 season with all three taking charge of games in this season’s Guinness PRO14 Final Series.
