Saracens could be thrown into a relegation battle by Premiership Rugby for breaching the salary cap, according to Rugby Pass.
The league launched an official investigation into Saracens in March, but Sportsmail reported in September that the Premiership’s salary cap manager, Andrew Rogers, had passed on the case to an independent body.
Under the salary cap regulations, matters only get referred to the specialist disputes body Sport Resolutions when there is deemed to be a case to answer, including where there is a breach of over £350,000 or a club is guilty of failing to cooperate.
That independent body is set to reveal the extent of the punishment this month.
It’s thought that the Premiership champions could be about to receive a massive 35 point reduction.
They resisted revealing the impending punishment awaiting the club out of a fear that the news could have disrupted England’s World Cup.
