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.
The only decisions that Gaffney may have to make is whether or not to include Rob Henderson and David Wallace in his travelling squad. Both played for their clubs last weekend, Henderson taking a full part for Young Munster and Wallace for 30 minutes in Garryowen's win over Belfast Harlequins.
It is likely that Gaffney will keep faith with the side that defeated Gloucester a fortnight ago.
