Six Nations and Rugby Europe’s International Championship are over now, Grand Slams and all, but there is till lots of top rugby to keep the referees on their toes.

Like Alhambra Nievas and Joy Neville before her, Hollie Davidsonof Scotland  has been appointed to a men’s senior international.

The PRO14 is back in action and Super Rugby continues on its intercontinental way.

Amongst many top referees in action there is Nigel Owens refereeing his 175th match in the PRO14/Celtic League. It’s an enormous feat for the great referee. This is his 18th year in the competition.

Jaco Peyper is in his 12th season of Super Rugby refereeing.

For Owens and Peyper the World Cup beckons, and others must also be waiting in tension, which makes current matches even more demanding.
