Saracens would welcome publication of report into salary cap breaches

The full details of the breaches which resulted in Saracens' relegation from the Premiership were revealed in a 103-page report obtained by Sky News.

But in a message to supporters published on the Saracens official website, the club's chairman Neil Golding said: "With regards to the publication of the disciplinary panel's full report, I am surprised by the suggestion that Saracens are objecting to the publication of the report".

"It's a massive opportunity. Time is a big thing", Jones said. What do they love doing? They love playing for their club and they love playing for England.

"Who do they love playing for? And then for the rest of the team it is an opportunity to get tighter".

England captain Owen Farrell has declared "nothing is set in stone" when it comes to his Saracens future.

Farrell is uncertain what atmosphere to expect from other players when the World Cup runners-up gather to begin preparations for the Six Nations, which opens against France on February 2.

The 46-year-old admits it has been hard period for Maitland, as well as Sarries teammate Duncan Taylor, who travelled to last year's World Cup but has been left out for the Six Nations.

"It would take agreement with Saracens, which they've withheld, for us to publish", Childs said. So they are at that stage where they have been on this treadmill for 10 years and I think they are seeing it as a positive where next year can be one where they are freshened up, physically recover and get better, play enough rugby and go on a Lions tour at the end of it fresh.

"We've had a sit-down, but obviously nothing is set in stone so [I am] not in a position to talk about it, but we feel clear enough at this moment in time to get on with what's in front of us and get excited about getting to England". We know we have let you down as well as the wider rugby community.

Andy Farrell, asked what advice he would give Owen, said: "I've not got an opinion".

"As far as players are concerned, they have a lot of ups and downs to deal with every week".

"When you make the change into another environment, I think that's going to be really refreshing", added Farrell, promoted from within the Ireland set-up after Joe Schmidt's tenure ended with a World Cup quarter-final thrashing by New Zealand in Japan in October. "I see Eddie using it to galvanise England a little bit as well".

England's squad were set to gather on Wednesday and Farrell, as the team's leader, will likely have a key role in making sure there are no disruptive divisions between the players given the need for unity.
