Very good news. Despite great players, brilliantly coached their Premiership wins have been a sham.

Why not remove their names from the competitions they won in the years in question? Promote those they beat in the finals to be the winners. That's how other sports do it.

Really glad the PRL decided to do something this time rather than fudging it again.

I do wonder if this may accelerate plans for a 13-team Prem, thus removing the specter of relegation from this year.

One would assume that they have to cut their cloth accordingly to bring their wage bill down from this point onwards. Sanction only cover the 3 seasons prior to this one

It’s good but I would have hoped that they would have been told to reduce their squad size or face further sanctions.

Also await imminent announcement of scrapping of relegation...
