Warrington Wolves have been fined £2,000 by the Rugby Football League for making a late change to their squad.
The breach came in the Challenge Cup semi-final against Hull FC when Stefan Ratchford replaced Josh Charnley and they failed to notify the RFL in time.
Ratchford started the 22-14 win over the Black & Whites on 27 July, with the Wolves going on to beat St Helens in the final last month.
Clubs must declare their squad at noon two days prior to a match.

Gareth Widdop will have to wait to make his Super League debut after Warrington Wolves' marquee signing was ruled out of the start of the season.

The England five-eighth suffered a lower limb injury in training after rolling his ankle and Warrington revealed he is not expected to be available until "around round four".

Gareth Widdop is excited to live a more relaxed life in the UK and get away from the attention in Australia.

The 30-year-old became the Wolves’ second marquee player earlier in the off-season after joining on a three-year deal from NRL side St George Illawarra Dragons.

And Widdop is made up to be closer to his family in Halifax, as well as enjoying a more chilled lifestyle in England.

He said: “That was a big factor (in coming over here). The NRL is such a big brand and the game is like the Premier League over there.
