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.
Latham has been quoted in today's Irish Times as saying, "I still haven't made a decision, but I'll know in a couple of days." But the official Queensland Red website carries the following news item posted on May 20th, from Jeff Miller of the Queensland Rugby Union,
"I'm delighted to say that Chris has had a change of heart and wants to stay with Queensland," he said. "We still have a few issues to iron out but I'm confident he will put pen to paper this week. Clearly we are thrilled that he has decided to stay."
The website piece concluded, Latham had been linked with a move to European Cup semi-finalists Munster, but is understood to have informed the Irish side last night (Mon) of his decision to stay in Queensland.
