Referee Appointments For The 2016 Six Nations Sees Ireland Reunited With An Old Friend
By PJ Browne Updated

World Rugby has announced the referee appointments for the 2016 Six Nations.

Ireland's opening game of the tournament against Wales will see a reunion with an old friend from the World Cup - Jerome Garces.

The French man was in charge for Ireland's quarter-final loss to Argentina.

In all, Ireland will have three French officials along with a South African and a tournament debutant - Aussie Angus Gardner.

Ireland vs Wales - Jerome Garces (France)
France vs Ireland - Jaco Peyper (South Africa)
England vs Ireland - Romain Poite (France)
Ireland vs Italy - Angus Gardner (Australia)
Ireland vs Scotland - Pascal Gauzere (France)

Curiously, World Cup final referee Nigel Owens will only take charge of one game. The last match of the 2016 Six Nations between England and France.
