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

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

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...

Re: Tigers vs Gloucester

what was really pleasing though was how well we did in that defensive set, under a lot of pressure. Remarkable step up from last season. As for the comments on the ref - it was thanks to his incompetence that we got that final scrum - should have gone the other way to be fair - but we have been due ...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

a number of other suggested ways of handling the punishment (serious ones) are doing the rounds of gossip

severe restriction on appearances of players outside of cap
severe restriction on academy players being allowed to play

A very good source tells me Sarries are prepared for the worst.........

Re: Premiership Round 1 - Worcester vs Tigers

Bumped into both TV and SK at Narita airport Tuesday night - neither playing this weekend unless emergency cover needed - I can tell you the effects of jetlag take a bit of getting over - both expect to return to work Monday and be in contention for Sarries

Re: PRC Round 1 - Warriors vs Tigers

treating this cup as normal preseason - which usually consists of 2 away games as part of a training camp with very developmental teams and ending with something approaching our team for the first league game.....expect this cup to be the same
