Matt Cecchin and Ben Cummins will referee this year’s NRL grand final between the Melbourne Storm and Cronulla Sharks on Sunday.

Referees boss tony Archer said the pair had been chosen given their previous work together.

“They refereed as a combination in the finals series last year, including a preliminary final, and are a proven combination in big games,” Archer said.

“The best officials will referee the grand final.”
