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.
In addition to this, there are fifteen players unable to train today due to minor injuries or having played yesterday, so today's scheduled training session has been cancelled.
Shane Horgan underwent surgery yesterday on his cartilage injury and the recovery period for his injury is 4-6 weeks. Malcolm O'Kelly, who came off on Friday with a recurrence of a previous knee problem, will be further assessed by the medical team today.
Barry Murphy, Peter Stringer, Gordon D'Arcy, Mick O'Driscoll and David Wallace are unable to train due to minor injuries.
Simon Easterby, David Quinlan, Neil Best, Rory Best, Simon Best, Bryan Young, Andrew Trimble, Tommy Bowe and Paddy Wallace all played yesterday and will rehab today.
Ireland Coach Eddie O'Sullivan said, "The squad have picked up a couple of knocks at the weekend following the Heineken Cup games and we also have to be mindful of players who have played yesterday. It was in the best interests of the players to prioritise rehab and recovery today to allow us to hit the ground running tomorrow".
