SARACENS say they are “keen” for the disciplinary report into their salary cap breaches to be published in full.
Premiership Rugby announced last weekend that the reigning English and European champions will be relegated from the Premiership at the end of this season in response to their failure to comply with salary cap regulations for the current campaign.
They were docked 35 league points and fined £5.36 million in November for breaking the salary cap in the 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons, but the dossier of an investigation led by Lord Dyson into those breaches has so far not been released.
Speaking on Tuesday, Premiership Rugby chief executive Darren Childs said Saracens would need to agree for the report to be published.
“It would take agreement with Saracens, which they’ve withheld, for us to publish,” Childs said. “We can’t publish it without their approval.”
And in a message to supporters published on the Saracens official website, the club’s chairman Neil Golding said: “To confirm, we are keen for the report to be published in full and I made PRL aware of this earlier today. It will provide much needed context and clarity.”
A Premiership Rugby spokesperson said preparations would now begin to release the decision document.
