Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

The investigation into salary cap breaches is no last minute matter it was announced at the end of last season Saracens have had plenty of time to address this, it is due to Wray's sense of entitlement and denial that they failed to cut the squad before this season started. Wray has shown himself to...

Re: Refs talk too much in English

I do not understand the thinking behind all the chat from refs, sure explain the reason after the whistle has gone to make the point but players know when they are offside or off their feet, the warnings and coaching actualy slow the game down and help to create the mess we now see at most breakdown...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

I see the let’s move on nothing to see here brigade are now trying to muddy the waters and say the cap is not enforceable and all clubs are probably cheating. The cap is easy to manage, all the clubs have always known any benefit that a player on their books receives as a result of being a player on...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

I assume Liam Williams was employed and under contract, if he played or not is not relevant, he was a Saracens player as per the definition. " Player " means, in relation to any Club, any individual (including an Excluded Player) in the relevant Salary Cap Year: (a)who is employed by that Club to pl...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

I do not understand why people on here want to find any excuse to make out Saracense are victims and are not guilty of deliberatly cheating, where they find themselves now, both players and administrators is down to a culture of entitlement to flout the agreed rules with out consequence. I still do ...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

Reading the regulations, Saracens are in trouble for the current season as thier declaration at the start of the season was not correct, no matter who they let go they were in contravention of the regulations, see below from regs 4.2 Declaration for 2019-20 Salary Cap Year Between 1 June 2019 and by...

Re: Nigel Wray Gawn

Wray should have been charged with bringing the game into disrepute and I still do not know why he was not, there has been too much brushing the dirt under the carpet, right from the cover up back in 2015. We all suspected Saracens have been cheating for years, even back when they signed up all thos...

Re: Paul Gustard

The Quins early drive at our 5m lineout that turned over our ball was the most blatant miss of the afternoon, not a peep from the TMO either, driving through when the jumper is in the air in a penalty or always used to be, I wonder what the officials are doing sometimes (most of the time!)

Re: The Shame of It

What makes me ashamed is seeing the laptops of the coaching team begging for someone to buy the advertising space, that is pathetic and gives off a bad image, is there any benifit in advertising the fact no one wants to be associated with the coaches week after week?

Re: TV coverage affects results

It was strange how the TMO's words mirrored Healy's at both the controversial incedents, the try and the linout.

Re: Exeter Chiefs 21st December

Tigers confidence fell apart after the missed lineout on the Exeter 5 mtr line, it was like watching a punctured tyre, the team collectivly could be seen thinking oh no not again, the second missed throw a few minutes later just put the tin lid on it. Is the linout a symptom or a cause? I wish someo...

Re: Tom Youngs - lineouts

I do not understand but then I am not a coach, they should be able to put thier finger on it and resolve it but season after season it remains unresolved. I cannot tell if our shocking lineout is a symptom or a cause but it kills us most games and takes away any momentum and removes an option, we al...

Re: Trouble at mill - May to go?

It is not possible or adviseable for Tigers to retain current English players without a sugar daddy and or some creative accounting that is a plain fact Our current internationals are not benefiting the club, Ben Youngs is the prime but not only example, I would argue they are harming the club by ta...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

I think if Saracens players stood down from England duty to save them from relegation, Newcastle would have something to say on the matter, their season imploded when Wilson was on England duty and they went down. Wray should face a charge of bringing the game into disrepute, I cannot remember a cle...
