London - Alain Rolland is to referee the Heineken Cup final between Toulon and Saracens at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff later this month in what is set to be the Irishman's last major European match before he retires at the end of the season.

It will be the third time the 47-year-old Rolland, a former Ireland scrumhalf, has taken charge of European club rugby's showpiece match after refereeing the 2004 final and last year's edition, where Toulon just edged out French rivals Clermont.

France's Jerome Garces will referee the all-English second-tier Amlin European Challenge Cup final between Bath and Northampton at Cardiff Arms Park on May 23.
