Robert Hicks to referee Challenge Cup final at Wembley

Robert Hicks has been appointed to referee Saturday’s Challenge Cup final between St Helens and Warrington at Wembley Stadium.

It will be the Saddleworth-based official’s second Wembley final after he took charge of last year’s game between the Wolves and Catalans.

Marcus Griffiths and Liam Moore will be the touch judges, with Ben Thaler the video referee.

Chris Kendall has been appointed to referee the first 1895 Cup Final between Sheffield and Widnes, which will follow the Challenge Cup Final (5:30pm).

It is a first Wembley appointment for Kendall, a 27-year-old former Huddersfield Giants Academy player who joined the RFL’s squad of full-time officials in July 2015.

Dean Bowmer and Jonathan Roberts will be the touch judges, with Andy Smith and Michael Mannifield the in-goal judges.
