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 following will occur in order decide a winner.
- 3 minutes of extra time will be played.
- A coin toss will be taken before this extra time takes place and the winner of this coin toss will decide whether they wish to receive or kick the extra time kick off.
- Winner of game will be decided by the first team to score a try in this 3 minutes of allotted extra time ie. a "Golden Try"
- If neither team scores a try in the allotted 3 minutes of extra time then the winner will be the team who reached the tied score first.
In normal game time, Team A scores a try to make the score 6 - 5. Team B equalises before full normal time is up thus bringing the score to 6 - 6. Therefore, if extra time produces no scores (ie no "Golden Try" winner), the Winner of the fixture declared will be Team A.
