Veteran NRL Grand Final referee Gerard Sutton has told Mark Levy and Paul Gallen his reappointment again in 2020 is “hugely thrilling”.

This year will mark Mr Sutton’s sixth grand final, but his first refereeing solo.

“If … it’s left to the teams to decide, then I think that’s probably the perfect outcome from an official’s point of view.

“You certainly don’t want to have preconceived ideas about what a team may do.”
