Marcus Griffiths set to take charge of shock fixture this week

After Leeds Rhinos lost to Huddersfield Giants sadly Marcus Griffiths was the victim of homophobic abuse.

It was a big game for Griffiths and one that was full of difficult 50/50 calls most of which he undoubtedly got right but a controversial drop goal awarded to Jake Connor dominated conversations after the match.

Following this, Griffiths surprisingly is in charge of a huge Championship match between York and Batley Bulldogs, crucial in the play off race and the battle for Super League promotion.

Perhaps this is to protect him after the recent incident or it is because of the size of the game with dead rubbers like Hull FC and Huddersfield Giants taking place in Super League.

Griffiths does have a big role in Super League this week acting as video referee as Catalans Dragons take on Leeds Rhinos.
