Wigan to appeal points deduction next week

Wigan will appeal against their two-point deduction and £5,000 fine on Tuesday for salary cap breaches.

The appeal will be heard by Sport Resolutions, an independent dispute arbitration service in Manchester, on March 5.

Wigan were hit by the news on the eve of the new Super League season last monthby an independent tribunal.

The penalty related to six separate payments totalling £14,700 in 2017, which wasn’t declared to the Rugby Football League.

Last month, Warriors chairman Ian Lenagan said it was ‘purely an administrative error by a new financial team’.

Wigan finished sixth in Super League in 2017 and failed to make the play-offs, while they lost to Hull FC in the Challenge Cup final.

Adrian Lam’s side have won one of three games so far this season, and currently stand on nil in the Super League table due to the docked points.
