    <p>League referee Hampstead retires AAP International rugby league referee Sean Hampstead has retired after 290 first grade games - despite the move to two men in the middle for all NRL matches this year. </p><p>Hampstead, who controlled three State of Origin games and two Test matches, will be a video referee for Sunday's Sydney Roosters-South Sydney game at Sydney Football Stadium. "I was going to go one more year but we had some discussions over the summer," Hampstead told AAP on Thursday.</p><p> "I'm going to be a video referee, I've retired completely from refereeing. "I told them I didn't want a press release. I just wanted to go quietly." </p><p>There is speculation some Australian referees have shown interest in heading to the English Super League - the RFL advertised for whistlers - with one of the referees at the SFS on Sunday, Shayne Hayne, heavily linked to a move. But Hampstead did not have the same option as he has a lucrative job with the police force in Sydney.</p><p> http://www.nrl.com/News/Latest/tabid....aspx?id=5399 </p>
