Roger I don't disagree with you at all

It's not the players, the staff or the fans fault this sorry mess has happened.

I admire any player that decides to stay with them next season. My point is really I suspect a number of them won't have much option.

They (the senior players) could have all collectively agreed to take the pay cuts required to meet this season's cap. Today's news would then not have happened
None of those players will have relegation clauses (why would they) so they are still contracted and thus due their wages as agreed.

If however they decide they want to continue playing in the Premiership / Europe and leave they are going into a market that probably won't be offering salaries at the same level (due to the cap)

I truly do admire those that stay I was just pointing out that the options to leave may be somewhat limited.

Would be interesting to see the RFU's / Eddie's position if they end up in France.......
