How on earth can Sorries still be allowed to play in the league given they have the same squad as last season which is clearly over the cap!!! THEY’RE STILL CHEATING.

THROW THEM OUT.

No they are not. We are all just very envious of their success apparently and we should act more reasonably and maturely. :x

They can’t have been over the cap last year as they have brought Singleton and Daley in this year :o :D

What amazes me is just how easy it was for the newshound who broke it to dig up the info. She said in Saturday's interview that she found it using the publicly available Companies House and Land Registry search engines. Why on earth didn't they put the companies offshore? I can only assume that either they genuinely believed that what they were doing was legit, or that people would be too stupid to look.

Brian Moore in the Torygraph has nailed it:

And don't always agree with him (or the Torygraph!!)

...and what on earth was the PRL salary cap manager doing? I was told in an interview 7 years ago (I listened to the recording again last week) that PRL were on top of this issue, and they were confident they'd quickly identify breaches - if a young reporter from the Daily Mail is more on top of things than they were then it's a pretty sorry indictment.

No heads rolled at PRL over the 'non-breaches' / settlements fiasco, and I doubt any will this time around.

I'm guessing she won't be welcome into the press box (nor anywhere else) at Allianz Park any time soon, nor any other journo's from the Daily Mail...

Given the apparent ease by which she found the incriminating evidence, it then makes you wonder if there is more she hasn't (yet) found, possibly offshore? No doubt she / others are looking into this, both for Sarries connections and others.

What has so far come out of the woodwork might be the sum total of it, but then again it might only be the tip of the iceberg...

Lettuce hope so, cos if it isn't someone will need a rocket up their backsides.....
I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....

You seem more concerned with what prl are doing than condemning the cheats,

Thanks goodness for Brian Moore - I think he has summed up how most people feel.
