From your own Chairman

Prior to my time here, there were discussions with PRL in relation to conducting a mid season audit spanning several seasons you will have seen references to that in the press. These discussions continued last week after my appointment.

It would be fair to say that other PRL stakeholders were sceptical about our compliance with such an audit.

We carefully considered the option of a full investigatory audit. However, that inevitably would have involved a long period of more financial and emotional strain and this in turn meant this was not a viable option for us. We therefore agreed with PRL on relegation in the hope that we could draw a line under the mistakes made by Saracens with respect to compliance with the regulations and concentrate on putting our new robust procedures in place.

So, willing to accept the financial and emotional strain of relegation in order to avoid the financial and emotional strain of being audited. Perhaps you can see why more people than PRL stakeholders are sceptical about Saracens' motivations?
