WARRINGTON Wolves' Super League rivals Leeds Rhinos have been hit with a £20,000 fine for salary cap breaches.

The fine – half of which is suspended – relates to breaches of the salary cap during the 2018 campaign.

It was established during a routine RFL audit that Leeds had failed to declare payments to three players.

The total amount of the breach was £55,000, with the club found to have exceeded the finite salary cap at four separate points during the season by sums ranging from £10,500 to £25,500.

Leeds have acknowledged their errors and reached an "agreed decision" with the RFL, so no appeal will take place.
