Referees named for European Encounters

Two Irish officials have been named by ERC for Tigers last two pool fixtures in this years Heineken Cup.

Former Munster winger John Lacey will referee Tigers for the first time when he takes charge of the crucial Round 5 match away to the Ospreys.  He refereed the Ospreys loss away in Treviso earlier this season and has also refereed them in two other games, both victories for the Welsh side.  He is not scared of a yellow card having given over 60 in only 50 games.  What price a card turning this game and both sides seasons?

George Clancy is named for Tigers home game the next weekend against Toulouse.  This will be Clancy's 4th visit to Welford Road previously refereeing the earlier pool game at home to Treviso, the thrilling 41 all draw at home to Gloucester  and the 46-10 win against Llanelli Scarlets in 2010.
