Super League Referee Appointments: Chris Kendall takes Yorkshire derby

Challenge Cup Super League referee Chris Kendall and Hull KR's Elliot Minchella

The officiating teams for Round 12 of Super League have been confirmed, with Liam Moore and Chris Kendall taking key fixtures.

With every game this season being shown live on Sky Sports, once again, every game has a video referee assigned.

On Friday night, out-of-form Huddersfield Giants look to get their season back on track as they face the ever-struggling Hull FC.

The returning Ben Thaler is referee, with Marcus Griffiths as video referee.

Elsewhere, both St Helens and Catalans Dragons look to show off their title credentials in a heavyweight clash at the top of the table.

Taking charge of this is Aaron Moore, while Jack Smith is video ref.

On Saturday, it’s the ‘warm-up’ fixture for the Challenge Cup final as George Williams-less Warrington Wolves host Wigan Warriors.

For this one, Ben Thaler continues his Super League duties as video referee, and Jack Smith is referee.

Hull KR come up against a Leigh Leopards side that have recently roared back into life despite high-profile outgoings this season.

It’s an all-Moore affair, as Liam is supported by Aaron consulting the replays.

A classic Yorkshire rivalry is ignited too in the late afternoon, as Craig Lingard’s side, off the back of a victory over Hull FC, may see this fixture against Leeds Rhinos as a real opportunity.

It’s Chris Kendall that’s been trusted to keep a lid on this one, and Liam Rush is video referee.

Finally, London Broncos play on Sunday yet again, this time travelling to Paul Rowley’s Salford Red Devils.

Liam Rush is referee here, and james Vella is involved in yet another Broncos game as video ref.

Here’s the full list of appointments.
