Saracens: Ex-captain Kyran Bracken says salary cap penalty ‘very unfair’

Kyran Bracken was inducted into the Premiership Rugby hall of fame in 2017

Ex-Saracens skipper Kyran Bracken says the 35-point deduction and £5.36m fine faced by the club for breaching salary cap rules are “very unfair”.

The Premiership champions will appeal against the penalty, which comes after an investigation into business partnerships between chairman Nigel Wray and some of the club’s players.

European champions Saracens described the sanctions as “heavy-handed”.
