Kingston on Sarries

John Kingston
November 6 2019

Only one story on the go at the moment and that is the fact that Sarries have been called to account for their "interpretation" of the salary cap. Everyone is expressing their opinion but nobody has made a better contributrion than our former DoR John Kingston whose thoughts can be found on iNews.

This is the link to the full article.

Kinsgton believes that Sarries should be stripped of all their trophies from the past three seasons, and one comment of special interest to  Quins supporters is the 2012 season when we had too many England players.

Their salary expectations went up withy their international status but we could only afford to pay three out of four players if we were to stay within the rules.

The simple answer was to offer all four contracts and the first three to accept would stay.

So we kept Ugo Monye, Mike Brown and Jordan Turner-Hall and David Strettle was the last to agree so had to go ...... to Sarries.

Totally agree - when cheating was proven in the past, draconian sentences were imposed, but in the case of Sarries it appears its punishment, or perhaps punishment, depending on appeals.

Strip them of every trophy they have obtained by cheating and demote them .

For one miss Quinns fans input to the main forum!

Interesting point about strettle. He joined Saracens originally in 2010. I believe the investigations concluded there were breaches in the past three seasons? No mention of before? Cheers.

I think Strets left quins because he got fed up of M. Brown not passing the ball
