Saracens have failed to send representatives to the official launch of the Champions Cup.

The Gallagher Premiership champions were yesterday found to be in breach of the league’s salary cap regulations, receiving a 35-point deduction and being fined more than £5 million.

The club were due to be represented by director of rugby Mark McCall and club captain Brad Barritt at the launch of the premier European club competition in Cardiff but neither attended the the event.

“EPCR is disappointed to learn of Saracens’ decision to make their club representatives unavailable for today’s official 2019/20 season launch of the Heineken Champions Cup and Challenge Cup in Cardiff,” said an European Professional Club Rugby (EPCR) statement.

“EPCR will now consider what action is appropriate in this instance and will be making no further comment at this time.”
