maybe they play for Sarries for next to nothing as they love the club, good for them

I appreciate the reasonable questions and tone of your posts but for me this is typical of the nonsense that we have seen posted. No one is suggesting that they're being paid "next to nothing" so why juvenalise the argument by posting that? I'm staggered that it's a stretch for so many people that players or in fact anyone might take a pay cut to work somewhere they know the working atmosphere to be good, you're well looked after and your chances of success are high.

The one thing we do know for certain is that a panel decided that last year Sarries were in breach of the cap and if nothing has changed since that time, regardless of what the players were actually being paid last year, then if they are getting paid the same this year, regardless of how small their salaries may be, then surely they will be in breach again this season when things are totted up in the spring.

Yes you're absolutely right "IF nothing has changed"but that does rather only work on the basis that Wray is happy to cop another points and financial fine next season and I'm not sure what the upside is for him there rather than get this all out of the way this season?
