Warrington fined over Challenge Cup semi squad

Warrington Wolves have been fined £2,000 after they broke regulations in regards to naming a 19 man squad.

The charge relates to their squad for the Challenge Cup semi final win against Hull FC back in July.

They had initially named Josh Charnley in their initial 19 man squad, but on the matchday, it was revealed Stefan Ratchford was playing, despite him not being named in the squad.

It is alleged the club did this without asking the RFL for prior permission.

Every club must name a 19 man squad by 12noon two days before the match, you can make changes in the event of an injury or other exceptional circumstances, but the RFL must approved.
