Richard Silverwood: Will referee Saturday's World Cup final
Englishman Richard Silverwood will referee Saturday's World Cup final between Australia and New Zealand at Old Trafford.

The international match officials panel have appointed James Child (England) and Grant Atkins (Australia) as touch judges, with Ben Cummins (Australia) as reserve referee.
Former Super League official Ashley Klein has been named as video referee, with New Zealander Henry Perenara his assistant.
