NRL confirm refereeing changes for All Stars match

Referees will go red and talk directly to fans through the PA system as the innovations continue at the 2012 Harvey Norman Rugby League All Stars at Skilled Park on the Gold Coast on Saturday week (February 4).

All Stars appointed referees Ashley Klein, Jason Robinson, Phil Haines and Gerard Sutton will be wired as normal for the match but NRL Referees Coaches Bill Harrigan and Stuart Raper said they would also have the added task of broadcasting their calls through the PA system to help explain the three new rules being trialled.
