Referee appointments: Tom Foley to take the whistle for Anglo-Welsh Cup final

Tom Foley will be the man in the middle for the Anglo-Welsh Cup final showpiece at Twickenham Stoop, where Leicester Tigers will take on Exeter Chiefs on Sunday.

For the Chiefs it is a third straight final appearance in this competition, and the West Country outfit will be looking to replicate their 2014 success when they beat Northampton Saints on home soil at Sandy Park to lift the trophy.

Meanwhile, Leicester Tigers will be desperate to put their recent frustrations behind them and claim their first silverware since their Aviva Premiership Rugby triumph in 2013, so Foley will have to have his wits about him in south-west London.

The 31-year-old, who first took charge of an Aviva Premiership Rugby match in 2014, will be assisted by Ross Campbell and Roy Maybank.

Foley is originally from South Wales and played rugby from a young age but following a string of injuries took up refereeing while completing his degree at the University of Bristol.

David Sainsbury meanwhile will be in the TMO hotseat on Sunday, and John Byett is the game’s Citing Commissioner.

Roy Marfleet is the final’s timekeeper, and fourth official duties will be shared between Phil Watters and Mike Hudson.
