While rugby has the reputation for players being nicer to referees than in football, there is of course, still a huge focus on the man with the whistle.
That’s why, before every Six Nations game, we will be taking a look at the man in black, or rather yellow.
The first Round 2 game will see Wales take on Scotland at Principality Stadium, Cardiff.
Wales come into the game following a 29-7 defeat in Ireland while Scotland should be more upbeat after winning against old rivals England 20-17 last week.
Here’s who will keep the boys in line.
Wales v Scotland referee: Nic Berry
Australian Nic Berry is a ref English and French fans might recognise, having played for Wasps and before that, Racing Metro.
He took up refereeing after retiring from the game in 2012 due to a series of concussions.
