Scotland’s Hollie Davidson will lead the first all-female team of referees to referee a men’s rugby test match.

Davidson will take charge of a match between Portugal and Italy next month.

The appointment will mean that she becomes the first female referee in a test featuring one of the Six Nations sides.

Davidson will be supported by assistant referees Sara Cox and Aurelie Groizeleau, as well as television match official Claire Hodnett.

Davidson will be part of an 18-strong team of officials, which includes 15 women, at the women’s Rugby World Cup in New Zealand later this year.
