Who is the referee?

Nika Amashukeli will take care of this match. The Georgian made headlines this summer after awarding one of the first red cards using the new off-field bunker, after Owen Farrell’s yellow card against Wales was upgraded to a red.

In an exclusive interview with Telegraph Sport earlier this year, he spoke about his experiences officiating and being stabbed after a match.

How to watch on TV
