Re: Saracens are relegated!

The thing I don't understand though, is how they are still over the cap this season? If it was only that large, apparently one off, purchase of one player's image rights that put them over - so what is the problem this year? Did they get cocky and just take their normal salaries way above the limit...

Re: Saracens are relegated!

Reading the report it is astonishing how comprehensive Sarries challenge was, despite Wray and the CEO admitting a cap was necessary. They were attempting to drive a coach, horses and the cavalry through the cap! Hard to see how it was not deliberate given their defence. "We believe in the cap but ...

Re: Saracens are relegated!

I'm done with the Saracens thing now. I'm. not desperate for more blood to be spilt. I'm just a bit perplexed. If Saracens aren't worthy of a disrepute charge. It begs the question what would a club would have to do in order to be worthy of a disrepute charge? Fart in a committee meeting. Wear the ...

Re: Saracens are relegated!

PRL have also issued a statement declaring no other club is over the cap and it is actually Saracens who are refusing to have the full ruling published... worse and worse and, well you get the picture

Re: Saracens are relegated!

Saracens prove why the cap is needed. In the real world, they are total unsustainable, their debt is massive and they only survive because Wray props them up. If the cap goes, with-out a sugar daddy, most clubs will collapse. On a side note, was talking to a Notts Forest support....Wray has form for...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

What I can't understand is why they were asked to give up their titles and were able to refuse. Just take them, change the names in whatever filing system the official record is kept and boom, done. What are they going to do, storm Twickers to change them back? I don’t get why they opted for relega...

So if I'm right Sarries will be spending two years in the Championship if they can't comply with this seasons cap?
As it stands at the moment, yes, they have to be compliant with the cap for the 2 years directly before promoted

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

Telegraph are now reporting the players have been told the club has accepted other 35 point reduction and so are effectively relegated it was 35 points for 2 seasons which is it now 35 points for this season when there was no way they didn't know they'd be over this season seems the original was 35...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

I think Sarries are in real trouble here, will the Wrays still be happy to bail them out when they are no-longer winners and playing in lower division? Its very tough on the fans.

Re: Staying on your feet???

Am I wrong in thinking the refs have abandoned the notion of staying on your feet at rucks, especially if you are the attacking side? The number of times yesterday BOTH sides dived over the top of rucks in order to create a barrier continued to amaze me. Sometimes players even went well beyond the ...

What a great game it was too. :smt045
Agreed the only awful thing about it was Sir Poite.
How it wasn’t a red I don’t know
Normally like Poite but he was awful today
