I don;t think the players are to blame in this situation.

Firstly, they wouldn't know what their colleagues are being paid. Secondly, if your employer comes to you and says 'we are going to structure your salary like this, but don't worry, we have taken legal advice and it is permitted under the rules', why would the players doubt them?

It is only human nature to seek the best salary possible. Factor it as well that, once a player has signed with Sarries, the club suggests that they no longer need an agent and they handle negotiations etc directly. We aren't tlaking about discussions between the club and an experienced agent who knows what to be wary of, rather an indiviual player who may well be naive in the matter.

I’m not sure how I’d feel if the club took on an ex-$aracen$ cap cheat?


How are the players complicit? They don’t manage the cap and have no obligation to do so. No individual deal is breaking the cap and investments aren’t against the rules.
They are probably bound by contract not to discuss their deals. Do you really think Owen Farrell keeps a running tally on squad earnings?

The club management are wholly responsible for the their situation and unfortunately it will be their players who will suck up the consequences.


You are insulting the players intelligence. Do you think, when it has been obvious to the rugby community at large for a long time, that none of them have been able to reach the same conclusion?


They may well think that but they have no responsibility for it. The club management hold the blame for this and no matter how they package it the primary reason for it all was cheating. The player welfare justification is at bet an added bonus but more likely a sham.

2 things from me....
1. A request to keep the sarries chat to the relevant thread (not this one!)
2. Hinkley rumoured to be off at the end of the season

It seems likely Hinkley will be going at the end of the season. A shame as he's looked very impressive when he has played. Full story here: http://bit.ly/HinkleyCouldLeave

That’s very disappointing, as much I really like Kriel I’d much rather retain Hinkley, hopefully we can pursued him of a future at Gloucester.

That would be a big disappointment. I see Linsell is loaned back to Hartbury, what happened to Will Safe?

Hinckley definitely looks a bright prospect and EPQ. It would be sad to lose him for want of a little squeeze elsewhere.
