The EPCR has appointed English referees Wayne Barnes and Luke Pierce to officiate the Champions Trophy and Challenge Cup finals in Marseille on May 27 and 28.

Leon, Doolon, La Rochelle and Leinster have been announced as referees for the Challenge Cup and Champions Trophy finals on May 27 and 28 at the Orange Velodrome. Officers who usually have one thing in common, they are both English. Luke Pierce will take charge of the Franco-French fight between Leon and Dolon in the Champions Trophy final on May 27, after whistling at the final Champions Toulouse win over La Rochelle at Twigenham. To help him in his mission, he can count on Irish assistants Andrew Brace and Frank Murphy to officiate the two semifinals of the tournament. Ian Tempest, an Englishman, will officiate the video while Irish player Ed Kenny will be the citation commissioner for the final.

Third Champions Trophy final for the Barnes

The next day, for the Champions Trophy final between Leinster and La Rochelle, the regular game whistle at the European Games will sound. Wayne Barnes leads England for the 90th time in his career and the third time he has reached the final. To help him, the experienced referee can rely on his teammates Matthew Carley, who was the umpire during La Rochelle’s victory over Racing 92 last weekend, and Christophe Ridley, who assisted during Leinster’s victory over Toulouse in the semifinals. When Italian Stefano Marrama was appointed as the citation commissioner for this final, Tom Foley took charge as the video referee. Note that Leinster won the last Champions Trophy with Wayne Born against Racing 92 in the final referee Bilbao.
