Premiership Rugby have confirmed there will be a “comprehensive review” of their salary cap regulations after champions Saracens were docked 35 points last month.
Sarries were also given a £5.36m fine for breaching salary cap regulations over three seasons.
“The success of Premiership Rugby is based on a group of fiercely competitive clubs who agree to play by the same set of rules on and off the pitch,” Premiership Rugby’s chief executive Darren Childs said.
