Planet Platforms employee, Stephen Race, continues his development in officiating rugby league games by recently being awarded Grade 1 refereeing status by the RFL.
This represents another milestone in Stephen’s rugby league career, having previously been awarded the National Conference League’s Referee of the Year.
The Grade 1 appointment allows Stephen to oversee games in the Championship and semi-professional leagues that sit just below the pinnacle of the Super League.
This Sunday Stephen will be putting his skills to the test as he has been appointed the local pre-season friendly derby between Featherstone Rovers of the Championship and Wakefield Trinity from the Super League.
Rugby League is a very popular sport in these parts of Yorkshire and all at Planet Platforms wish him the very best.
