Salford docked two points



Salford have been docked two competition points and fined £5,000 by an RFL Operational Rules Appeals Tribunal.

It is punishent for fielding 14 players during a Super League fixture against Castleford Tigers on Saturday April 27.

The sanction relates to an incident in the 77th minute of the match when Darrell Griffin and the player who was replacing him from the interchange bench, Vic Mauro, both became involved in tackles whilst the club had 14 players on the field of play.

The Tribunal handed down the increased sanction after rejecting the City Reds’ appeal against the original fine of £10,000 imposed at a hearing on May 8.

The points deduction means that Salford will drop below London Broncos to the foot of the Super League table.
