I've just listened to the Rugby Union Weekly podcast. - Saracens special. Not something I usually listen to but felt the need for obvious reasons. It included an interview with Brendan Venter. Some interesting comments made:

1) Brendan reckons Saracens were over the cap by around 500K. The 2M being quoted is completely false. He said because Salaries are measured from July to end of June Saracens needed to offload players with a combined salary of 2M to get within the cap this season - as we are now in January

2) Brad was quoted as saying the squad would stay together. (Personally I just cannot see this particularly in a Lions year)

3) Ugo Monye (not the best I know) saying that it would be easier for Farrell to stay than a Ben Earls or Max Mallins as they would be giving up on their England hopes for the best part of 3 years

Also on the podcast was Laura Scott who broke the initial story. The general comment was PRL were not doing their job properly if it took a journalist to uncover the cheating. Confirming what most of us have said.

Anyway it's probably worth a listen (if you can face it)
