Salford have been docked six points after being found guilty of breaching the Super League salary cap.

The Red Devils were also fined £5,000 by an independent tribunal for breaking the Rugby Football League's operational rules and salary cap regulations concerning contractual arrangements made with three players in 2014 and 2015.

The tribunal, chaired by Judge Peter Charlesworth found that Salford had committed a serious breach of the rules including exceeding the finite salary limit of £1.825 million in 2014.

The points deduction will be imposed immediately, which means Salford drop to 11th in the table, above only bottom club Huddersfield on points difference, although Red Devils owner Marwan Koukash said he was considering an appeal.
