Challenge Cup winners Warrington have been fined £2,000 for breaking the rules over squad announcements ahead of their semi-final win over Hull.

The Wolves played England full-back Stefan Ratchford in the game at Bolton in July despite not naming him in their initial 19-man squad and he went on to kick three goals in a 22-14 victory.

Ratchford, who was not due to return from a torn pectoral muscle for another three weeks, was drafted in at short notice after winger Josh Charnley pulled out with a knee injury.

Applications need to be made as soon as they are aware a change is necessary and must be supported by a formal notification to the RFL.

The RFL says Warrington, who went on to beat St Helens in the final at Wembley in August, accept they failed to formally advise them of the amendments within the timeframes and guidelines set out.

Warrington have not made any comment.

Scottish court rules Boris Johnson illegally suspended Parliament. U.K.'s top court will have the final say..
A Scottish appeals court, the Court of Sessions, ruled Thursday that Prime Minister Boris Johnson violated Britain's constitution when he prorogued, or suspended, Parliament until Oct. 14. The three-judge panel, led by Lord Carloway, Scotland's senior-most judge, overturns a lower court ruling that courts can't interfere with political decision by the prime minister. But the appellate court did not immediately overturn Johnson's order, allowing the U.K. Supreme Court to make the final decision in an emergency session called for Sept. 17. It did, however, inject more chaos into an already madcap Brexit fight.
