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.
Late last month over 2,000 supporters packed into Tallaght Stadium to watch Joe Schmidt's men prepare for the start of the Bank of Ireland Series pre-season matches.
Leinster Rugby has undertaken a number of pre-season open training sessions across the length and breadth of the province.
They have visited the likes of Boyne, Clondalkin, Edenderry, Kilkenny, Malahide, Mullingar, Portarlington, Portlaoise, Tullamore, Wexford Wanderers and Wicklow in recent years.
Tickets for the two Bank of Ireland Series pre-season fixtures, against Southern Hemisphere Super 15 opponents Melbourne Rebels and the repeat of the Heineken Cup final against Northampton Saints, are on sale here.
