Women Referees

Hollie Davidson and all-female referee team to make history in men's rugby test

The June 25 fixture at the Estadio do Restelo in Lisbon will be the first men’s international to have been controlled by an all-women’s team, with Davidson to be joined by assistant referees Sara Cox (England) and Aurelie Groizeleau (France), along with Claire Hodnett (England) as the TMO.

It will also be the first time a female ref has taken charge of a men’s Six Nations team in a test match.

Davidson described it as a “tremendous honour and an achievement I am proud of”.
