Saracens handed multi-million pound fine and a points deduction
It's in connection with multiple breaches of salary cap regulations.
Saracens are facing the "devastating" threat of being docked 35 points and fined over £5million for multiple breaches of Premiership Rugby's salary cap regulations.
Club chairman Nigel Wray says the club, who are back-to-back Premiership champions and reigning European champions, will appeal against what they describe as "heavy-handed" punishments.
The launching of an appeal means the sanctions will be suspended.
Had the points penalty come into effect immediately, it would have left the team on -26 points after three games played in the early Gallagher Premiership standings.Published: by Radio NewsHub
