The 26-year-old Wigan-based official also took charge of last year’s Wembley decider, when Leeds Rhinos beat Salford Red Devils.

Match officials’ boss Steve Ganson said: “Liam has refereed particularly well this season. He has been extremely confident and consistent in his decision making and deserves his second appearance at Wembley.

“He has a very strong officiating team around him who have all performed to a consistent high level.”
