Norway has been stripped of their two competition points in the 2013 European Bowl, gained after a home 26-14 win over Czech Republic, for fielding ineligible players.

The five players who played in one or both of their Bowl matches against Ukraine and the Czech Republic - Omar Baghdadi, Sean Casey, Timothy Hackney, Tim Rowan and Isaac Schmidt - have been suspended indefinitely by the Rugby League European Federation Board.

They cannot be named in any future Norway national team squad until their eligibility has been verified.

Czech Republic will face Ukraine at home on 29th September to determine the Bowl winners.
