Jackson to referee Fiji clash

Former Saracens fly-half Glen Jackson will referee England's opening autumn Test against Fiji at Twickenham on November 10.

New Zealander Jackson, 36, retired from playing after the 2010 Premiership final between Saracens and Leicester to take up officiating.

And after some impressive displays during the past two years he will now move up to the international arena.

England's other autumn games - against Australia, South Africa and New Zealand - will be controlled by Frenchman Romain Poite, Wales' Nigel Owens and Irishman George Clancy, respectively.
