EPCR consider action over Saracens no-show
Saracens’ representatives pulled out of yesterday’s season launch of the Champions Cup in Cardiff, prompting European Professional Club Rugby (EPCR) to consider taking action against the club. European and English champions Saracens were docked 35 points and fined £5.36 million (Dh25.7m) on Tuesday after being found guilty of breaching salary cap regulations. “EPCR is disappointed to learn of Saracens’ decision to make their club representatives unavailable for today’s official Season Launch of the Champions Cup and Challenge Cup in Cardiff,” EPCR said in a statement. “EPCR will now consider what action is appropriate in this instance and will be making no further comment at this time.” Saracens have said they will appeal the sanctions.
