Munster v Toulouse: Nigel Owens

Nigel Owens will referee the Heineken Cup quarter-final between Munster and Toulouse on Saturday, 5 April.

The referees for the quarter-finals of the Heineken Cup and the Amlin Challenge Cup have been announced following a meeting of the ERC Match Officials sub-committee.

The meeting reviewed match official performances across all relevant tournaments in conjunction with feedback from the referee managers in each Union and from club coaching staff.

Alain Rolland has been appointed to referee the Anglo-French confrontation at Stade Marcel-Michelin between last season's beaten finalists, Clermont Auvergne, and Leicester Tigers, while Jerome Garces will be in the middle for Ulster's showdown with Saracens at Ravenhill Stadium.
