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.
Maria Aylward and Nicola Hayes, who play their Tag at Waterpark RFC for the 'Rucksavages' team during the summer, entered their details at the end of last season into the Tag competition draw and were drawn as the lucky winners to shout on Ireland in a thrilling draw against Australia.
Before the game, Maria and Nicola took a little tour through the Hogan Stand pitchside and then enjoyed some VIP treatment at the official IRFU pre-match luncheon.
Maria said: "Both Nicola and myself had a fantastic day and thank you so much for facilitating everything so well for us.
"Obviously the game itself enjoyed a thrilling finale so we couldn't have asked for more. Looking forward to next summer's Tag season in a big way."
