I am not a Sarries supporter and am a lifelong supporter of another Premiership club. I gain no pleasure in what is about to happen to your club and will forward to you returning one day, but with a club that is abiding by the rules that all the other clubs adhere to. I have, for quite some time now, had my own serious suspicions about how such a large and talented squad of players could possibly be assembled and paid under the present salary cap rules. Obviously no one, until now, had proper proof that the cap rules were being blatantly broken but now the truth (or part of it?) is out, the severe penalty is rightly being applied. Cheating, and even serial cheating, cannot, and must not, be allowed to prosper. When competitions and trophies are won by cheating, they are such hollow and false victories. I just hope that, one day soon, all clubs will play by the agreed rules and we can all enjoy rugby played on a level playing field. Whatever happens during the remainder of this season, your results will appear meaningless to most rugby supporters, until such time as your club shows clear proof that it is willing to abide and play by the same rules as all other clubs.
