Premiership Rugby has confirmed today that following the completion of the independent audit of Salary spend for the 2016-17 Season, it was established that Wasps had overrun their limit by £40,528.
In accordance with the Regulations, at this level of excess the Club will pay 50p per £1, being £20,264.
“This is not a breach of the Regulations and there is no suggestion it was deliberate,” said a Premiership Rugby spokesman. “A number of adjustments were identified by the independent auditors which resulted in the overrun. These have now been addressed.”
