Super League referee appointments: Ben Thaler handed huge gig

Super League Round 18 is almost upon us and we are set for some huge games including a massive fixture in the play-off race as Leeds Rhinos head over to Salford Red Devils. We will of course see two of the biggest teams in the league collide as Super League and World Champions St Helens lock horns with Warrington Wolves but the headline clash of the weekend is the Hull derby between Hull KR and Hull FC.

But who is in charge of your game this week?

Well the big gig goes to Super League’s most experienced official in the shape of Ben Thaler. He will be the man in the middle at Craven Park for the Hull derby.

Meanwhile, Marcus Griffiths will act as the video referee whilst Thaler himself will be the video referee at the other Sky game between Warrington and St Helens whilst Griffiths has referee duties himself for Wakefield Trinity’s clash with Wigan Warriors.

Turning back to Warrington and Saints, Jack Smith will be the referee for this clash.

Brothers Aaron Moore and Liam Moore both have games this week with Aaron overseeing Leeds’ trip to Salford and Liam taking charge of Castleford Tigers’ clash with second place Leigh Leopards.

Meanwhile, League Leaders Catalans Dragons meet Huddersfield Giants with Chris Kendall in charge.
