ERC, the tournament organisers, (Tuesday, 5 January, 2010) announced the referee appointments and additional broadcast coverage for the remaining 24 Pool matches.
Three referees – Alan Lewis, Alain Rolland and Chris White – have each already controlled over half a century of Heineken Cup matches with Welsh official Nigel Owens next in line to join the elite 50-match club. It will be Heineken Cup match No 46 for Owens when he travels to France for the Sunday showdown between triple tournament champions Toulouse and Harlequins.
The nominated referees are drawn from the ERC 2009/10 Match Officials’ panel, with the nominations proposed by Donal Courtney, the ERC Match Officials Performance Manager, to the ERC Match Officials Sub Committee.
The committee is made up of Referee Managers from the six Unions of the participating teams, who review and confirm the final appointments.
The performance of match officials will be reviewed by the ERC Match Officials Performance Manager, together with a panel of Performance Reviewers (PR). Head Coaches / Directors of Rugby are invited to submit their comments and feedback to the ERC Match Officials Performance Manager on the performances of Match Officials in their games.
