Why were they given the option to chose between opening their books or being relegated? Surely they should have been forced into opening their accounts if they wanted to ever be allowed back into the Premiership again.

I don't think PRL have handled this well at all. People (Nigel Wray at the top of the list) should be given life bans. Can we really assume that Mark McCall knew nothing about the budgets he was working under and the wages of his players? Surely he must know the cap constraints or he'd try and sign even more of the world's best players?

Are the players that accepted the 'extra' cash totally innocent? Is being ignorant an acceptable defence? It isn't in criminal law. When you work in a job where the amount of money you are being paid has to fall under a limit and someone offers you more money via a joint venture, do you really not ask questions about its 'legality' within the rules?

As for the trophies and titles, well they should be null and void. I don't want some Sarries supporter in 2050 (should the club survive) boasting about how successful they were in this period of time. The shame of being found out as cheats should live with them in the history books forever. I wonder if next years kit will have their little stars on it for the titles that they've corruptly won?
