Neville became the first TMO of a men’s international game last November as she continues to impress on the big stage, having worked as TMO for England’s Six Nations clash against Italy last month.
Mike Adamson will become the first Scottish match official to referee a Guinness PRO14 Final when he takes charge of this Saturday’s encounter between Leinster and Munster in Dublin.

The 36-year-old also recently refereed his 50th game in the Guinness PRO14 last month.

A product of elite referee pathway, Adamson has become a leading figure for Scotland’s match official programme which has most recently seen Hollie Davidson referee her first game in the Guinness PRO14.
