I can’t see the Irfu sanctioning any eng international signing. I’d be surprised if any players end up at the provinces. Will any of them fit in available budgets? I’m doubtful.
Id rather see gametime for younger players..... now where those younger players come from is another thing!

Sky have got their hands on the report. Over £2m overspend a yr, every yr.

Ashton got 20% of a 1.6m joint property investment - he paid the money back.

Itoje was deliberately over paid for his image rights 250k?
Wigglesworth - 250k
Vunipolas - 450k

Really bad look for the players. I’d be seething if I was the Exeter boys. No wonder Wray left in a hurry.

I see re Saracens, there is Regulation 15 which says teams can only be promoted from the Championship if they have been within the Salary Cap in previous 2 years. Given Saracens are in breach this year, does that mean they have to stay in 2nd tier for 2 years? Discuss, by the book yes, in reality who knows?

Have to stick to the rules. Could be legal challenges if they don't.

1pm UK Time - from the Swiss Nigels' social media accounts, so from the horse's mouth so to speak.

Here I'm flying out from Toulouse on the Ryanair flight that night. Would it be very dangerous trying to watch the game then running to the airport? Flight is 1855 and airport is only 5mins drive Google says. I'm not sure about baggage but think I could get away with hand luggage.

I'm in Andorra thar weekend. No issue getting to Toulouse early. Ffkkkk.

Twenty minutes to the airport in a car, assuming you beat the traffic.

It won't be the French ref we had against Bath so at least you should catch a good chunk of the game!
