The announcement was made by the EPCR today with Doyle having previously taken charge when the two side met in the competition's group stage last year.

The game in Thomond park saw Munster run out 14-7 winners, a scoreline they'll be hoping they can repeat.

Doyle is affiliated with the RFU having been a ref in the Aviva Premiership for over a decade.
