Referees to 6 January 2019

Happy New Year! We wish a wonderful 2019 to all referees and all those who have anything to do with them, including the kind people who send us the appointments each week.

To the match officials, we wish a year of great appointments, no disappointments and no controversies or disgruntled clients.

There are few appointments this week as the world settles down to recover from New Year festivities. But PRO14, England, France and Wales still keep us interested.

We hope that Andrew Brace is back fit again.

We also wish Joy Neville well as she continues to lead tghe way into “men’s rugby”.
