Alain Rolland awarding a scrum

Exeter v Toulon: Alain Rolland

It's a big weekend in the northern hemisphere as European club action returns in the form of Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup competitions.

In one of the big games of the Heineken Cup round, Ireland's Alain Rolland takes charge of Exeter Chiefs' sell-out Pool Two clash against champions Toulon at Sandy Park.

In the Amlin Challenge Cup, England's Matt Carley will make his European Rugby Cup debut.

It's also the third round of the HSBC Sevens World Series, this time in Port Elizabeth. After a review of their performances in Dubai, the referees arrived in South Africa on Monday afternoon to journey to Port Elizabeth. Amongst them was Federico Anselmi of Argentina who refereed the Final in Dubai.
