Super League refereeing appointments as Ben Thaler gets massive gig with two surprising omissions

Well, another weekend of Super League is upon us and it promises to be a cracker!

Thursday night sees Warrington Wolves host Toulouse Olympique in what many people are dubbing a relegation four-pointer with the Wolves just four points above the French side.

Wind the clock forward to Friday night and Castleford Tigers are at home against Catalans Dragons whilst Hull KR take on Leeds Rhinos at Craven Park in what will be Danny McGuire’s first time taking on his former side as interim coach.

Salford Red Devils then take on the Huddersfield Giants on Saturday afternoon live on Channel 4 with Hull FC doing battle against St Helens and Wakefield Trinity hosting Wigan Warriors on Sunday.
