Wigan deducted two Super League points over salary cap breach | Rugby League News |

Reigning champions Wigan Warriors have been deducted two points after being found guilty of breaching Super League’s salary cap.

The breach, which the Rugby Football League says occurred in 2017, was announced just over 24 hours before the Warriors begin the defence of the title they won for the fifth time at Old Trafford in October.

It means that Wigan, now under new head coach Adrian Lam, will kick off the 2019 season at St Helens on Thursday night – live on Sky Sports Arena and Mix – on minus two points.
