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.
With the results all in, the ties for the second round are now confirmed. The draw took place recently at the same time as the first round draw.
Match of the round looks to be the rematch between Blackrock College and Shannon - a repeat of the final from last season.
There were some high profile casualties in the opening round with Nenagh Ormond getting the better of Lansdowne, who will undoubtedly be concentrating all the more on the AIB League this season.
The Tipp side's reward is a home game against Leixlip club Barnhall who had a three-point win over Connemara in the first round.
