Referees to 9 February 2015

The Six Nations bursts into life this weekend. On Friday Jérôme Garcès of France will blow the whistle in Cardiff that gets the great tournament going.

Also this weekend the European Nations Cup, the 'Six Nations B', also gets going with a match in Heusenstamm in Germany's Grand Duchy of Hesse.

World Rugby's Sevens gets going again in 2015 in Wellington, New Zealand.

In South Africa, the popular Varsity Cup starts up. The matches are played and broadcast on a Monday, which is who we now give our appoints for a day longer to include Monday. There is a great opening match between the Universities of Cape Town and Stellenbosch which stretches back some 140 years.

The Varsity Cup will be played on the two-referee system, will use the white card for a team's request to a referee to review and incident and will confine the scrumhalf of the team not winning the scrum to the tunnel.
