Entirely intentional my far eastern friend.

Not football, but Saracens have been deducted 35 points and fine £5.3m for breaking their salary cap.

It's a weird one in that it's been a fairly open secret that the salary cap hasn't been all that effective for a few years now, and suddenly it's gone from being overlooked to incredibly harshly enforced without as much as an interim step. But it sure is a hell of a message to send.

Fair play, that's a sanction that will encourage others to take notice. Is it likely to stand?

Gone in hard knowing they can fall back if there's an appeal.

Should of been done to Muff when they went up....20 points deduction reduced to 19 on appeal.

Seems a little more nuanced in trying to circumvent the rules. I know its the Mail, sorry.

Sad state of affairs,   could easily have been us in the past.  Do clubs get themselves in this position due to overspending or lack of income,either way surely the accountants should pick up on this long before it gets to this stage.  Slippery slope I presume,   let's hope they don't finish up with the same outcome as Bury although it's not looking good for them at present.

After yesterday, fielding a Cup side made up of youth players and loanees, losing 0 - 4 to Kingstonian, I think there must be a risk of Macclesfield not completing this season.
Presumably if that occurs matches against them / points won will be struck off the record, which will no doubt impact differently on some teams near the top. Looking back at results to date they lost to us, Cheltenham and Exeter, but drew against Colchester and Newport.
No point in worrying unnecessarily, but letís hope it doesnít happen.

Macclesfield players now advised not to train or play because they aren't currently insured
