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.
Haslett paid tribute to the Irish side for their performance on Friday particularly in the second half when they outscored their opponents. "We gave away two soft tries, but in fairness to the boys they really showed tremendous commitment and resilience and their second half performance was truly remrkable. Of course they were disappointed, one to lose and then to lose out on the bonus but they're a very resolute bunch and that's all behind them now and they're fully focussed on the next game.
Saturday last was generally given over to rest and recovery with the squad using the excellent facilities at the Oratory School and yesterday it was back to business as the squad prepare for the encounter with the Scots in Newbury tomorrow evening (5pm).
Haslett expects to name the side for that game at lunchtime today (Mon) and reports that everyone will be available for consideration.
