Super League Referee Appointments: Chris Kendall given major gig

The referee appointments are now in for Super League Round Three.

The man in the middle for the biggest game of the weekend will be Chris Kendall.

Kendall is in charge of the Grand Final rematch between St Helens and Leeds Rhinos on Friday night live on Sky Sports.

It is St Helens’ first home game since being crowned World Champions by defeating Penrith Panthers.

Liam Moore was the man who officiated the Grand Final itself so it is interesting to see Kendall get the nod.

Jack Smith has been given a number of high profile games this year so it is no surprise to see him as the video referee for this clash.

He will be the man in the middle for the other Sky game on Thursday as Warrington Wolves take on Salford Red Devils.
