Premiership Rugby to investigate player tax returns and WhatsApp messages in new salary cap rules

Darren Childs believes the Premiership now has the best salary cap regulations ‘in the world’

Though a number of Saracens players who were involved in business dealings with club owner Nigel Wray – which were found to be the root cause of the salary cap breach – voiced their opinion against having financial details accessible, the Rugby Players’ Association has been involved throughout the process of finalising the new measures.

“We’ve worked very closely with the RPA over the last few months,” said Rogers. “We’ve made changes where we could without departing from the principles of the Lord Myners recommendations. They will be told imminently. We can’t speak to each individual player but going forwards the players can come to me if they have questions.”
