Super League refereeing appointments for round three as Chris Kendall gets the marquee gig

THE Super League refereeing appointments are in for round three this weekend.

With five games on Friday and just the one on Thursday, most referees will be unable to back up as touch judges or video referees this weekend.

Jack Smith will take charge of Warrington Wolves’ home fixture against the Salford Red Devils in the sole game on Thursday night.

Wind the clock forward 24 hours and Marcus Griffiths will be the man in the middle in the south of France as Catalans Dragons take on Hull FC whilst Aaron Moore will take charge of Wakefield Trinity’s home game against Huddersfield Giants.

Chris Kendall has been given the marquee Sky Sports gig between St Helens and Leeds Rhinos on Friday, with Tom Grant taking charge of Castleford Tigers’ home fixture against Wigan Warriors.

Last but not least, Liam Moore will be in the middle as Hull KR host Leigh Leopards. Here are all the appointments in full:
