Saracens are set to drop their planned appeal against a £5.4m fine and a 35-point penalty for a breach of the salary cap.

The back-to-back Premiership champions and reigning European champions had initially announced their intention to appeal against what they deemed to be “heavy-handed” punishments that were further described by club chairman Nigel Wray as “absolutely devastating”.

But ahead of Monday’s deadline to officially serve notice of appeal, Saracens are now poised to confirm they will not be doing so.

While an appeals process was in place, the sanctions were initially suspended.

The points penalty, however, will come into immediate effect

These components are quite fancy!!
