It would take a special brand of incompetence to struggle to afford to spend to the cap and simultaneously breach it, so I'd hope we would be clean!

I presume the cleanliess applies historically too, when perhaps we could spend up to the cap

Who says we don't spend up to the cap?

The message is that we do spend to the cap.

We do, however, now struggle to afford to do so.

On the other point we'll certainly be in that position from the last time the Saracens and Bath breaches were swept under the carpet, so PRL won't be going back further than that because the precedent to that point was set.

Why do we struggle to do so?

If the rational is that we don't make a profit, this means 11 clubs struggle to to pay up to the cap.

If we spend up to the cap and continue to do so, where is the struggle? What is sacrificed?

And certainly whilst managing to be as desperately poor as we've been of late!

Hey Vambo - good to have you back mate!

Other clubs have a wealthy benefactor willing to make up the numbers. Tigers do not.

Ex claim they make a profit, but their ground is small - max 13,600. perhaps they sell a lot of cider and cream teas.

Exeter have the same sort of sponsorship deal with SWComms that Man City do with Etihad - companies that happen to own the clubs.

The Cheats certainly had a wealthy benefactor who made up their numbers!

They also have a huge conference facility. I very much doubt the Rugby side of the the business makes a profit
