Ex-England captain Chris Robshaw calls out Saracens

Ex-England captain Chris Robshaw held no punches when discussing Saracens salary cap breach which saw them docked 35 points and fined £5.3m.

“As a sport we often look down our nose at other sports and say our grass is greener,” Robshaw said.

“We’re often easy to criticise football and athletics about cheating – now we’re exactly the same.

“The sport’s in a dark place, this sport’s going to be in a tough place now. As you see our most successful team in the last three years or longer has been known to be cheating when we’re trying to compete on a level playing field.

“Our grass is no longer greener.


“It is tough to take. They’ve won three Premierships and two European cups in that time, and now we know why.

“Call it what you want. It is cheating.”
