Georgian referee Nika Amashukeli will take charge of Leicester Tigers’ first European Challenge Cup match against Pau this Saturday (November 16).
He will be assisted by Shota Tevzadze and Saba Abulashvili from the touchlines at Welford Road, with Richard McGhee named as citing commissioner.
As this Cup fixture is not scheduled to be televised live, there will be no Television Match Official.
The match will be Amasukeli’s first match in the middle of a Tigers fixture, although he has previous experience of this competition. He also became the first Georgian referee to feature in the Six Nations tournament when he took charge of England U20s’ 35-10 rout of Italy in March.
