Super League refereeing appointments revealed as Chris Kendall’s absence explained

SUPER LEAGUE is back this weekend following a week’s break for the Challenge Cup Final.

Castleford Tigers host Wigan Warriors on Friday night alongside Hull KR’s home clash against Huddersfield Giants and Salford Red Devils’ trip to Warrington Wolves.

On Saturday, Hull FC host Leeds Rhinos before Catalans Dragons take on the Leigh Leopards as London Broncos and St Helens round off the weekend.

However, despite officiating in last weekend’s Challenge Cup Final, Chris Kendall is absent from the list of refereeing names this week, with the RFL confirming to League Express that, due to the emotion of the Wembley occasion, it would be best for Kendall to have a breather before he returns to the middle for Super League Round 15.
