Scottish referee Mike Adamson has been appointed touch judge for the European Heineken Cup final.

It’s the highest-profile club role yet for the 36-year-old who was due to run the line in this year’s Guinness Six Nations match between France and Ireland before it was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Adamson, a former Scotland Sevens international, will assist Nigel Owens who will take charge when Exeter Chiefs and Racing 92 go head-to-head in the Euro final at Ashton Gate in Bristol on Saturday 17 October.

Ireland’s Andrew Brace is the other touch judge.

Mike Adamson is a former Scotland Sevens international.

Stirling-born Adamson took up refereeing after retiring from a playing career in which he represented Glasgow Hawks, Glasgow Warriors and London Scottish.

He was a Scotland age-grade international and also played for the Scotland Club XV as well as the Sevens side.

The vastly-experienced Owens will be taking charge of his seventh Heineken Champions Cup final, and his ninth European club decider in all.
