Referees to 16 March 2015

It's the penultimate round of the 2015 Six Nations this weekend with the crucial clash in Cardiff when Wales host the log leaders Ireland.. Ireland are the only unbeaten side but Wales, who have lost once, are not without a chance to win the championship.

In the so-called Six Nations B Georgia are top followed by Romania and Russia. This weekend there are two keen rivalries between neighbours when Georgia play Russia and the Iberians meet in beautiful Coimbra.

The Pacific Challenge, the new name for Pacific Rugby Cup which was started in 2006, starts in Suva on Tuesday with two rounds this week.

The great news in the Super Rugby appointments is that Shaun Veldsman is back as TMO after his horrid ordeal on the way home to Robertson after the Blues match there.

It's great, too, to see Chris Pollock sufficiently free of injury to be back in action.
