Champions Cup referees for Round 3 & 4 announced

The referees for the next two rounds of the Heineken Champions Cup have been announced.

For Munster’s crucial Thomond Park clash with Saracens on December 7, Romain Poite will be in charge with the Frenchman no stranger to the Munster faithful.

Poite was in charge when Saracens defeated Munster in the semi-finals of the competition in 2017.
