The Heineken Cup and the Amlin Challenge Cup are back in action for the second weekend of December, and the European Rugby Cup (ERC) has announced the referees for these matches Europe is , after all, in the middle of its season and referees need to be on their toes.

The appointments are made by a committee made up of the ERC's referee boss, Donal Courtney as convener and the referee managers of the Six Nations.

In announcing the appointments, Courtney said the importance of the refereeing of key areas such as sealing off at the tackle, offside at rucks and kicks, and obstruction at line-out mauls had been reiterated to the participating clubs and to the referees.

Courtney also emphasised that ERC continued to provide an opportunity for club coaching staff to share their feedback on the performances of match officials and that this feedback was an important part of the review process upon which appointments were based.

Round 3 will be played from the 6 December, Round 4 from 13 December.
