Nigel Owens

The big one: Nigel Owens

It's a big weekend in Europe that sees the climax of the Heineken and Amlin Challenge Cup competitions taking place in Twickenham.

At the Stoop, Wayne Barnes takes charge as Biarritz face Toulon in a French derby in the Amlin Challenge Cup final and Twickenham itself hosts the climax to the Heineken Cup between Leinster and Ulster where Nigel Owens is in the middle.
