Ireland's John Lacey will referee his first ever RBS 6 Nations match in February, while Alain Rolland is also included in the Elite Panel in what is his last season.
In our most recent poll, we asked you whose try you rated as the best amongst the provinces' scores on the second weekend of European action.
The poser was: "What was the best try scored by an Irish player last weekend?"
And Munster centre Barry Murphy easily came out on top, leading almost from the word go. His 34th-minute try in the province's 41-23 pool win over Bourgoin certainly drew the plaudits and caught the eye, as much for his finish as for his link-up with his centre partner Trevor Halstead.
The 23-year-old Murphy, back at Thomond Park where he scorched over for his corker of a try against Sale last January, latched onto Halstead's pop pass as the French defence was blown asunder and he injected a dash of pace at just the right time to glide over for his second Heineken Cup try in only his fifth start.
Murphy's effort gained 745 votes for a winning mark of 46%. Second was Leinster full-back Girvan Dempsey, with the first of his two-try salvo - set up by Brian O'Driscoll's excellent behind-the-back pass - in the 25-24 loss to Edinburgh, securing him 615 votes (38%).
Next up was young Connacht full-back Daniel Riordan who grabbed a well-taken try in the westerners' agonising 21-19 Challenge Cup pool defeat to Bath. The Galway man finished with 118 votes (7%), while Murphy's Munster team-mates Frankie Sheahan (5%) and John Kelly (4%) took up the rear.
Many thanks to all those who voted!
