  1. It's certainly not unknown. For instance, England play Ireland and then Wales at home later in this Championship. Last year Scotland played Italy and then Ireland at home in the first two rounds. Italy played Wales and then Ireland in the second and third rounds. England played Italy and Scotland at home in the last two rounds. Scotland and Ireland both had consecutive home fixtures in 2018 as well but I can't be bothered to look any further. Having 3 home and 2 away matches or vice versa gives certain sides an advantage/disadvantage every other year anyway. It's the nature of the competition.
  2. I haven't read anything about that. I've just seen summarised versions of the report though.
  3. PRL should absolutely have been policing the cap properly so that it never got to this stage. It's not at all clear to me that Sarries have been the only club to break the cap in this period either but we'll probably never know now. That said, in a sense Sarries only have themselves to blame. That the question about co-investments wasn't asked of the salary cap compliance mob is quite telling. Particularly after they'd effectively been given a warning in 2015. Wray isn't a stupid man. I'm quite sure he knew that it'd likely be a no go. Never ask a question when you don't want to know the answer.
  4. SA actually haven't picked one either.
  5. Bess apparently dropped for Woakes because of all the reasons.
  6. Thanks for the reply. It will be interesting to see how much of what has been reported is true and how much is false.
  7. Out of interest is this some of the info you were referring to? Are PRL lying through their hoop about Sarries blocking its publication?
  8. Nobody could argue with your last sentence.
  9. It's certainly going to be interesting. Premiership rules also say that you can't be admitted without having been in compliance with the salary cap for at least two seasons. Will that be enforced?
  10. It's a negotiated settlement between the other clubs and Sarries, not a punishment handed down by the RFU. Sarries have taken relegation to avoid having to open their books. I doubt it's the end of the story.
  11. @Kid in the Riot they've set the parameters now so I'd say they'll have to keep an eye on everyone as far as the cap is concerned. I'm tweet-spamming the thread but this is an interesting question too:
  12. Channeling MLK to get Sarries through fans of other clubs they've screwed over saying nasty things about them...
  13. Either Rugbypass have blown a hole that you can see from the moon in their credibility or Sarries are in a world of pain.
