Possibly a dim question but I've read a fair bit of the coverage on the Sarries position albeit not all and I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere - what happens to the fine money (whatever the final amount on appeal)?

Does it get split between the other shareholders of the prem? If the initial amount does end up sticking that's not a small amount even split between 12/13(?) clubs, could make a difference to those clubs who aren't otherwise able to spend up to the cap, and could assist clubs like Saints, Tigers etc in paying down debt and being on the right side of the black/red this season?

Alternatively would be great to see it deployed in grassroots rugby, especially off the back of the RWC which has hopefully generated more interest in rugby in general.

Depends a bit on how Premiership Rugby's admin is paid for. If the clubs all contribute a set amount I suppose the fine could be off-set against future contributions.
