Klein named referee for Centenary Test

Englishman Ashley Klein has been appointed referee for Friday's Centenary Test between Australia and New Zealand at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Klein will be assisted by sideline officials Leon Williamson of New Zealand and Australian Steve Chiddy.

Bill Harrigan (AUS) and David Pakieto (NZ) have been appointed video referees for the match.

The Centenary Test will be played under international rules, meaning it will feature the 12-4 interchange format rather than the current NRL system of 10-4.

This also means golden point extra time does not apply.
