They really are the pits. What is the likely punishment? Anyone know?

Agen got docked 4pts back in 2000 for something similar... that would be enough to let Glasgow in as replacement quarter finalists!

Wouldn't that be brilliant!!

Reports around that London Irish had 2 points docked and Grenoble 4 for similar offences. 2 would be enough to see them lose out.
I find your lack of faith......disturbing.

Given today's announcement and in particular the timing of it which is extremely odd, it wouldn't surprise me if Sarries relegation did not happen by design.

Anyone for dominoes?

Allianz do the Championship a favour and sponsor them instead!

I think it’s articles like this that make people wonder if the players were stupid or complicit in the deals. Itoje just comes across as someone who had the deal took and didn’t real care. If it’s too good to be true that’s because it is. Also if you are a private person, don’t have a Ltd company, because funnily enough any person can see your accounts from company house. Mako clearly isn’t bothered by the downfall.
Really starting to dislike them.

Or, better still, sponsor a Championship team and ensure their promotion keeping Saracens down another season until the abolition of promotion/relegation. :smt001

That would be nice Old Hob, but I was thinking more the longevity of the league.
