I’m aware this has been rumoured in the media, but to have it confirmed from someone inside a Prem club suggests it’s got some validity.


Interesting.

However I will only get excited if it is a meaningful fine and deduction, not some token £1000 and 5 points cop-out.

How much was my first question! He didn’t know, but is going to ask!

Good news Cameron. I hope it’s right and if it is I am presuming it will also affect their current and previous recruitment? Surely if they are over the cap by the Ltd company route,some players might not want to stay on ‘basic wages’ ? I’m sure we can accommodate a couple at short notice?

They’ll have to make some reductions for next season. I don’t think they’ll have to have a fire sale this season.

That may mean liquidating the assets / Companies and / or letting some players go. There’s a well over a dozen of their players who I’d love us to get, I guess it just depends on what positions we need strengthening for 2020/21.

It’s a MASSIVE overspend, so I’d expect some high profile names will be leaving at the end of the season.

It will be 3 years until the next RWC so expect many will end up in France.

I think I’ll wait and see what/if sanctions are handed out for what specific offence. I still think they’ll be a slap on the wrist.
I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....

Seriously Cam? I hope you’re right. That would mean those of us who have been saying for years that if it looks like a dog, barks like a dog, smells like a dog............etc aren’t as stupid as those who have consistently claimed Sarries are doing nothing wrong have always made out. If they are proven to have cheated all this time (which I believe 100% they have done whatever the ruling says) I’ll be fascinated to hear wht the apologists have to say.

I think more importantly they need to be warned if it happens again they get relegated by four leagues, and must allow a independent expert to over look their books for five years

I'll believe it when I see it. Sarries have got away with it for years, I don't think that anything will happen.
