Interesting article. I agree it's going to be a fine balancing act with the new owners bringing in bigger names whilst not wanting to hinder the development of our talented youngsters.

The stats for Saracens would also seem to validate their view on how they spend within the salary cap, although of course the squad is massive.

Also good to see that I wasn't completely wrong with regards to Exeter who have a reputation for having achieved their success through internal development, whereas clearly there's been significant outlay in recruitment over the last number of years.
