Ireland's John Lacey will referee his first ever RBS 6 Nations while Alain Rolland is also included in the Elite Panel in what is his last season.
The third Dublin derby in the league this weekend will be staged at Donnybrook where Bective Rangers entertain an Lansdowne side.
The two Dublin 4 clubs, both currently in the top six of the Division Two table, have started the season well.
Bective put 36 points on DLSP last Sunday for their first win, while Lansdowne, after a thrilling 19-19 draw with champions UCC, stormed past Instonians on a 37-6 score-line at the RDS last weekend.
Another points blitz from their influential, new out-half Charl Oosthuizen should see Lansdowne first past the winning post.
