Wakefield Trinity have fined the "small minority" of their players who broke West Yorkshire's tier 3 coronavirus restrictions on New Year's Eve.

The Super League club investigated the incident, with the players involved apologising for their actions.

They have also been given written warnings, with their fines being donated to Wakefield Hospice.

The final two rounds of European pool matches that were postponed earlier this week will not be rearranged, Premiership Rugby has confirmed.

The games were set to take place over the next two weekends but instead the Champions Cup and Challenge Cup will go straight to a knockout format in April.

European Cup organisers (EPCR) are set to announce the revamped structure of the competitions in the coming week.

"The decision was made by the EPCR executive," said Darren Childs.

Premiership Rugby's chief executive added: "The reason we can't reschedule those is that there are no available weekends. Our season is now full right until our final.

Looks like Super League will be starting two weeks later than planned on 25th March in the hope that they can get fans in. I don't think it will happen to be honest.

I notice the Six Nations contract is due to expire this year. Will the contract continue with the BBC and ITV sharing games, but maybe some swaps in which games are covered( such as the BBC being allowed inside Twickenham again) , or will Sky make a bid that the BBC and ITV cannot match? Also is it possible Channel 4 could enter the fray?

"Sky are expected to bid for some of the Six Nations packages when the auction for the 2022 to 2024 tournament cycle takes place later this year, but as it stands the only live rugby rights they own are for this summerís British Lions tour, which is shrouded in uncertainty due to the Covid-19 situation in South Africa."
