EPCR have confirmed our officials for Round 1 & 2

George Clancy will ref Pau v Glos; Welshman Dan Jones will do the home game v Agen.

Does this count as 'big announcment'? :o

Very surprised by this, but also very pleased. George Clancy is one of the best refs in the world IMO, hence my surprise he is in charge of a Challenge Cup game. Excellent news after the clown we had in the first round last season!!!!!

Clancy....one of my favourites. Even had him calling Glaaaaaaawster in Cardiff one day. He loves the atmosphere reffing at Kinsgsholm. Have to make him feel at home in France.

So what do we know about Dan Jones? The EPCR and Pro 14 websites don't say a lot about him, though I did find a nice picture of him with Wayne Barnes.

I'm sure that Dan Jones refereed the Leicester v Saints AWC game last season unusually the match stood out for me because of the fine refereeing.

He was excellent, a very young Welsh referee in the mould of NO. Excellent use of his officials especially the TMO, I predict a very good future for him, and hope he has a good one on Thursday



Although he'll need a change of shirt.... ;)
