PRO12 Rugby have today confirmed that Nigel Owens has been appointed to referee this weekend’s Guinness PRO12 Final between Munster and Scarlets at the Aviva Stadium.
The 45-year-old Welshman is the most experienced referee in the PRO12 and his appointment marks the fifth occasion that he has taken change of the Championship Final.
It has been a landmark year for the official who made his 150th PRO12 appearance earlier this season, while two weeks ago he refereed his sixth European Cup Final, taking charge of his 100th European game in the process.
Owens made his first appearance in the Celtic League when he took charge of Border Reivers v Connacht on August 30, 2002.
