Maybe Itoje & the rest of the Saracens boys should’ve worn those runners up medals after all.— Graham Love (@glove931) November 5, 2019
Probably the only ones they’re getting this season.

Unlucky… over paying your players and then having to pay that bill… Was it worth it all?— James Wilson (@_JamesWilson_) November 5, 2019
To be best in Europe over the last few seasons?
To now be officially labeled cheats?
Makes me wonder who else plays the game this way? 👀 https://t.co/PRFWMZaGle

You know what, I’m glad that @premrugby have taken decisive action over @Saracens it’s rediculous that they have been able to get away with it for so long! Hopefully there will be a level playing field! #saracens— Oscar Turner (@oscarturner97) November 5, 2019
