Saracens chief responds to reports they need to offload players

Saracens chairman Nigel Wray has insisted the club’s all-conquering team will not have to be ripped apart.

Players such as Liam Williams and Ben Spencer have already been linked with possible exits.

“Just to clarify, there’s no obligation whatsoever to get rid of any players,” said Wray.

“The academy is, in a way, a jewel in our crown and has been greatly responsible for half the England side that got to the World Cup final, and seven of those have been with us for between seven and 10 years, almost since they were kids.

“This is what a caring environment and looking after its people does. You have a band of brothers and I have said it already, but if you think it’s about money, you’re wrong.


“It’s about caring, it’s about love, it’s about working together, and I’m very proud of all of our players and indeed everybody at Saracens.

“I’m proud of their achievements and I hope there will be many, many more achievements on the field and off.”
