But one thing I promise you dicky if Scotland leaves the union and stays within the EU then I'm off to live in Scotland. I know it will be a long commute to Welford road every 2 weeks but several of my friends make even longer journeys than that.
As I said previously - not the forum for this argument. My last comment.

Clearly evident? Granted, my comment about Bath/ James Dyson was 'tongue in cheek'. However, my comment about Sarries is entirely relevant and rugby related.
Given that their major funding comes from a SA consortium - the value of the £ against the Rand is important, especially as they have a reported high level of debt.
But hey, no worries - strange times these....

Good work fellas. The rest of us were working hard to keep this to rugby.

Iain then you should have kept your comments related to rugby and not brought any other topic to the table.

Erm... YOU did that!?

I spoke only of rugby and tried to steer any conversation on Brexit away from an ill-advised debate on this forum.

I have very strong views on the implications of last week's referendum on this country that I would be happy to discuss. This probably isn't the right platform for it though.

Sticking to the actual theme of the thread there are a number of scenarios:

1. Any future employment legislation will be broadly similar to the current in the long run and there will be little actual change.

2. Or all the current exceptions which make overseas quotas virtually meaningless will no longer apply and league/RFU will be able to implement an enforceable limit. This would surely be a 'good' thing as otherwise why do we have a limit at present however useless it may be?

3. Some bodge which a satisfies no-one halfway between the current free for all and a coherent system which changes in employment legislation might enable.

[This should get the thread moved...]

Question: How many rugby-playing Brexiteers does it take to change a light bulb?

Answer: I never made promises about light bulbs. If others made commitments about light bulbs, it was a mistake on their part. Saracens pay no more for light bulbs than anyone else - we source them from outside the Single Market.

I think that we should be looking to have some sort of restriction on match day squads, in that there should be a minimum of English registered players.
With Brexit happening, should we be taking the opportunity to help develop our young players. Too often players are brought in who have little positive benefit to the English game, to the exclusion of our developing players!
