Re: Ed Griffiths in more trouble?

Interesting that in addition to refusing a forensic inspection of this years books as an alternative to automatic relegation they were also refusing examination of historic books. The only reasonable conclusion is that there are things to hide going back many years and for that reason I don't belie...

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!

Isn't Venter a born-again or devout Christian? Is truth-telling part of it? :smt017

Re: Borthwick

The rot started when the BoD refused to put money into coaching post MOC. We needed an injection of quality coaches but got either nothing or IMO useless appointments of Mauger/Hansen, then the second coming of MOC. A concatenation of disasters that IMO left the club in ruins. A lot has been done to...

Re: Saracens are relegated!

The whole thing is a bit unsatisfactory, in my view. They are still over the cap. They are relegated irrespective of points gained. I don't think they should be allowed to play this season any more. Chalk their results off and give teams an automatic four points. That would give fairness for all th...

Re: Saracens are relegated!

What stuns me is that from the top to the bottom at Sarries (the fans) nobody seems to accept they were persistently breaking the rules. Indeed some fan comments border on the tinfoil hat brigade with conspiracy theories etc. WE thought they were breaking the rules with signings like Smit (for very...

Surprised by Moon and Umaga, Grayson and Smith ahead of him surely?
I expect Smith to fall by the wayside as he gets 'read' more easily, and Grayson needs to mature a bit. Umaga will get a smell of a cap if EJ wants to keep him, methinks he is a sub-Freddy but that's just me.

Re: Saracens are relegated!

Chiefs are my family team, I'm the odd one out. There are qualifications on the part myth about the 3 forwards concerned, just make the point TTTE was initially not a fans favourite, indeed was close to ejection, until there was an assertion of coach power; he remained a bit of a curate's egg for ma...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

PRL will have to show they have teeth. They will be encouraged by some of the other club owners/CEOs, and I suspect they will have had and may still have Tony Rowe badgering them daily. It's a mission for that man! :smt009

Change of ref with Ben Whitehouse now the man in the middle for our game in Pau
Not unhappy with that
Was excellent when he started, very decisive and to the Laws but went off the boil, like too many do, in the name of 'entertainment. Better than Clancy though! :smt005

Re: Refs talk too much in English

I think it also highlights what is being complained about elsewhere. A player either off his feet or interfering should be penalised; in the few matches I have been able to attend recently, the ball has been slowed down incessantly - it only takes a fraction of a second for a defence to gain an adva...
