ARL appoints Harrigan to his 21st

The Australian Rugby League has ignored a plea from the Queensland camp to o overlook Bill Harrigan for next week's third State of Origin game, appointing him for a 21st appearance.

Queensland chairman of selectors Gene Miles says it's time to give another referee a go for the dead rubber between New South Wales and the Maroons at Suncorp Stadium. But it's been announced that Harrigan will take control of his 21st Origin - and 12th in succession.

The standby referee will be Tim Mander, who will also work with video referee Eddie Ward.
