ROBERT Hicks will referee Saturday's Super League Grand Final between The Wire and Wigan Warriors.

Hicks, who also took charge of Wolves' Challenge Cup Final defeat to Catalans in August and last week's Super League semi-final win over St Helens, has taken the whistle in one previous Old Trafford match.

That game also involved Warrington and Wigan as Hicks was in the middle for the 2016 Grand Final, which finished 12-6 to the Warriors.

Richard Thompson and Chris Kendall have been chosen as touch judges, Gareth Hewer is the reserve referee and Ben Thaler will serve as video referee.
