16 October: Wests Roosters demoted for 2014 season
The WRFU Rugby Board sub-committee held a hearing on October 2 to determine sanction for the matter relating to Wests player Faialaga Afamasaga, who played in the 2013 Hardham Cup. The board has found the club to be in breach of bylaw 8.19, relating to the eligibility of overseas players. The player was found to be in breach of the bylaw, therefore, Wests were deducted competition points from the three fixtures it won when Afamasaga was playing. The Wests Roosters have thus been deducted points from the Premier games they won whilst he was playing and and as such fall to seventh and have been demoted to Senior 1 for2014. Unless a restructure is imminent, Johnsonville will take their place.
