Things go from bad to worse for Saracens who are now subject of an investigation into playing an ineligible player.
"Saracens are subject to a misconduct complaint after playing prop Titi Lamositele when he may have been ineligible in January's Champions Cup win against Racing 92.
The tournament organisers were informed by the club that United States international Lamositele's work permit expired the day before the match.
Saracens beat Racing 92 to reach the quarter-finals."

Saracens have been fined 50,000 euros [42,000] for fielding an ineligible player but stay in the Champions Cup.

Good news as they are the only English team that stands any chance of winning it.

Apparently, 50% of the fine has been suspended, although it is not clear on what that suspension is conditional.

Personally, I would not write off Chiefs to win the Champions Cup.

C'mon you Pirates !!!!

I hope the Chiefs do well but their track record in Europe is not good.
