4. Premiership sleaze
Back in 2002, The Telegraph reported a conspiracy theory that the Premiership owners’ attempted to bung Rotherham the best part of £1 million not take up their promotion
The fact that the plan was never carried out because Rotherham failed an audit of their facilities and were denied promotion does not lessen the stink.
You may be shocked to hear that the report names Saracens owner Nigel Wray to be at the heart of the conspiracy.
Is it true? Would love to say absolutely not but it’s a reliable source.
