The match officials for Leicester Tigers’ festive fixture with Exeter Chiefs in Round 6 of this season’s Gallagher Premiership have been revealed.

Luke Pearce will take charge of his 93rd Premiership game as the man on the whistle for the league clash at Welford Road this Saturday (December 21, 3.00pm).

He will be assisted by Jack Makepeace and John Meredith from the touchlines, plus Television Match Official Rowan Kitt. Will James is named as citing officer.

The match will be Pearce’s first in charge of a Tigers match for almost exactly 12 months – with his most recent game the 35-24 bonus-point win over Harlequins last December.
