Re: Saracens are relegated!

the key bit for me has been mentioned in several posts This is what was found in the review rather than what was admitted. if it was only about these known (well known now) transgressions then they should have been comfortable opening the books this season - instead they took relegation. Which only ...

Re: Saracens are relegated!

the only way the majority of the big names will stay is if they go out on a season long loan - Saracens need to cut costs and the championship has a salary cap too. I cant imagine they wont be looked at quite severely next season too..... As McCall was quoted - this squad will be broken up and its t...

Re: Bath vs. Tigers - Sat 25 Jan 15:00

this weekends camp is part of the agreement between PRL and England - so no players available from EJ's squad Also - don't under estimate the task ahead on Saturday - their pack and their defence is a real step up from last season - impressed with Abano particularly - and it will be a sticky old dec...

Re: Borthwick

Borthwick expected to join the club post summer tour and well in time for pre season - also he will be heavily involved in those plans from now on - and in fact has been part of them for a little while now. All part of an agreement forged by the unpopular Simon Cohen. SB will still have England duti...

Re: What Now For Our Season?

its been proven that currently, no English side can compete in Europe without cheating the cap. Exeter have a chance to progress this year, but I suspect few imagine they can win (hope I am wrong) The one thing I would say is we should target the top tier competition because that's what the players ...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

Daily Mail is usually pretty accurate on rugby reporting. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/rugbyunion/article-7896673/Saracens-brink-automatic-relegation-Premiership.html Looks like they are between a rock and a hard place. Probably going to accept a year in the Championship (where there is no sal...

Re: Nigel Wray Gawn

Saracens were found guilty of administrative errors and not for breaching the salary cap (fact). Not true - they were found guilty of breaching the salary cap. That's a fact. How much and to who has not been disclosed - but be clear they were found guilty of a breach. The fact that they counted inv...

Re: Nigel Wray Gawn

I think (know) the main concern is that the players who received "investments" as supplements to their salaries still have those investments - therefore they should still be counted against them in terms of salary. So, if player A receives a house, it's not a one off - its a continuing asset that he...

Re: Jonny May

Liam Williams is on a pretty good wage at Saracens, I’d imagine that would pay for May. Liam Williams would qualify as a marquee player whereas May would not. That could be a factor. Sarries will have to reduce their overall squad size but they will still want to keep adding quality. Williams not e...

Re: Will anyone want to buy the club??

There are 3 buyers who are being considered and going through the usual due diligence at the moment my sources tell me - all will have a positive effect on and off the pitch....

Watch this space but we remain a very good target acquisition...........

Re: Will anyone want to buy the club??

combining grounds would not work - primacy of tenure is still an issue with PL and premiership clubs

Think the lack of interest in Asia would make KP investment unlikely

Bunch, how good are your sources, would think the decision would be shared by very few. Big Dan - well, we will see on this one. I trust them and they have been good for me up to now. There is "noise" around the premiership on this for sure - as ever some will be conjecture and guess work, but ther...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

my sources tell me Sarries are very prepared for the worst - remember it could be more than 35 points deducted too. Had they lost those points last season, they would have finished 10th (still above us !!) My sources also tell me the announcement is this week and will take effect immediately. Sarri...
