Owen Slot has reported in the past as has the rugby paper but probably as you say laying low for the moment (or are all reporters in Japan). The Mail has a very obvious link/leak with the donkeys from the almost south west (as my Cornish friends refer to them) and is being fed regular Owners meeting updates - also note it is not Chris Foy as the named reporter.

A post from the Sarries SN page:

"I do think there is something ironic about Premiership Rugby deferring giving us a beating because they don't want to derail England's WC bid. A WC bid that is only on track because of the players that Saracens brought through the academy and turned into world beaters - the very same players that Premiership Rugby don't want us to pay market value for.


So they are now admitting that those players are worth a fortune, but PR are stopping them paying the top whack for them?? Irony, arrogance, choose your favourite adjective........

I'd like to comment on their thread, but I honestly get too wound up. Well done VV for remaining composed enough to do so though.

I suspect I'll come to regret it.

Mako Vunipola, Billy Vunipola, Elliott Daly, Alex Lozowski,  Liam Williams, Rhys Carre, Will Skelton ... All grateful to the ex-academy players for so generously not being paid market rates so Sarries can afford to pay them enough to transfer

Just because its recommended that Sarries broke the salary cap, it doesn't mean Sarries will not argue the case. In their eyes they have done nothing wrong.

Pretty confident Sarries will say 'Don't care what you say, speak to my very expensive lawyer, we've done nothing wrong'.

IMO they'll think "We're too rich and clever to be caught doing something wrong"

According to the commentator at the Tigers-Sarries game Sarries have twenty internationals away and still have six in today's team.

Call me a cynic...
