Saracens docked 35 points and fined £5.3m for breaching salary cap rules

first_imgLewis adds: “In the Saracens case, the club has allegedly failed to disclose arrangements between its players and the multimillionaire club owner, Nigel Wray, where they have started joint business ventures. Presumably, this could have been a means of providing additional benefits to those players, or at the very least, something which ought to have been declared as part of the overall ‘salary’ payments.”Saracens are entitled to seek a review of the decision by an arbitration body and have confirmed that they will appeal. The judgment was made by an independent panel, chaired by Lord Dyson, that decided Saracens failed to disclose payments to players and exceeded the ceiling for payments to senior players in the 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons.In a statement, Wray said: “For over 25 years I have put my heart and soul into the game I love. Together we have created something incredibly special with the Saracens family, both on and off the field.Before the storm: Saracens win a lineout during their win against London Irish last weekend (Getty Images)“This is absolutely devastating for everyone associated with this amazing group of players, staff, partners and fans. It has been acknowledged by the panel that we never deliberately sought to mislead anyone or breach the cap and that’s why it feels like the rug is being completely pulled out from under our feet. We will appeal all the findings.”There was a very different view from Tony Rowe, Exeter’s chief executive. “I don’t think the penalty is severe enough,” he told BBC Radio Devon. “You take away 35 points this year, they could still be in the semi-finals and still end up at Twickenham (in the Premiership final).”Aggrieved: Tony Rowe, the Exeter boss (Getty)Asked what would be a fair punishment, Rowe said: “Relegation. In professional sport in America, if you’re in breach of the salary cap you get thrown out completely.”The salary cap regulations were introduced 20 years ago and have helped forge one of the best and most competitive leagues in sport. They not only prevent a club potentially signing all the top players and so totally dominating, but also keep spending to manageable levels.A Premiership Rugby spokesperson said: “The salary cap is an important mechanism to ensure a level playing field for Premiership clubs and maintain a competitive, growing and financially sustainable league.“Today’s decision by the independent panel upholds both the principle of the salary cap and the charges brought following an extensive investigation by Premiership Rugby. We are pleased that this process has reached a conclusion.” However, the fallout could extend far beyond that, with questions now raised over whether some Saracens players will need to be offloaded and even whether the club’s recent titles will be allowed to stand. Exeter Chiefs won the Premiership in 2016-17 before losing the past two finals to Saracens, but David Lewis, an employment lawyer at Capital Law, says stripping Saracens of previous honours is not on the table.“The rules are lengthy, detailed and drafted in a typically lawyerly fashion, but they only allow for an adjudication for the current season,” he says. “So even if the club was found to be in breach for the same reasons for the three previous years, it cannot be held to account retrospectively. Bad news for Exeter Chiefs.” The current regulations run to more than 114 pages – up from 57 last year – and prescribe what a club may, and may not do, when it comes to salary. What might and might not constitute ‘salary’ is defined over around ten of these pages and the definition goes well beyond merely a set monthly wage.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The Premiership club’s recent successes have been tarnished by news of multiple rule breaches and Saracens are now staring up from the bottom of the table Saracens docked 35 points and fined £5.3m for breaching salary cap rulesSaracens have been docked 35 points and fined £5.36m for repeated breaches of the salary cap regulations.The sanctions follow a nine-month investigation by Premiership Rugby and relate to breaches in each of the past three seasons by the reigning English and European champions.The points deduction takes immediate effect and leaves Saracens propping up the Gallagher Premiership table with a points tally of minus 26. They now look set for a relegation battle, although history suggests they will be safe – they would have finished tenth last season had the same penalty been imposed then.last_img read more

To what degree can the spaces of our homes feel individual and separated, yet foster interaction across them? How can the inhabitants perform rituals of dwelling in various parts of the home whilst maintaining a connection?Save this picture!© Kat LuThe ‘Esquire’ inter-war Art Deco apartment building is imbued with humane proportions and details, yet suffered from being too compartmentalised for modern living. The client purchased the one bedroom apartment to act as their city “nest” – a small place in the city for them to hide out for a weekend or host family and friends when they came to town. A family of five, the apartment had to have an ability to expand and contract to accomodate 1 to 5 people at a time. Besides the bedroom, the living and dining nook can be converted into sleeping quarters which provide a degree of separation and privacy from one another. Fold down beds are concealed within the walls of the living space whilst the generous bench seating and retractable Eileen Grey Jean table to the dining nook allows for provision of a fifth sleeping area.Save this picture!© Kat LuSave this picture!Floor planSave this picture!© Kat LuIt is during the day, with potentially 5 people occupying the apartment at any one time, that careful consideration of the functions of the apartment are most required. The intervention saw the removal of three walls to create a greater connection for inhabitants across living, dining and cooking areas. The apartment’s ground plane is opened up to give an increased sense of space, yet thresholds are maintained between them through the downturns of the ceiling and subtle changes in material and finishes. The design attempts to find a balance between the removal of barriers to the inhabitants interactions whilst still clearly defining zones of service, living and rest.Save this picture!© Kat LuProject gallerySee allShow lessHulunbuir Hailar Airport / United Design U10 AtelierSelected ProjectsRockford Public School / CannonDesignSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Challis Ave, Potts Point NSW 2011, AustraliaLocation to be used only as a reference.

At least one journalist missing in wave of violence in Tamaulipas state

first_img Terrors reigns in the news media in Tamaulipas, a northeastern state that borders Texas, after more violent clashes between drug traffickers and after reports – not all confirmed – of a total of eight journalists being kidnapped or disappearing. The staff of newsrooms refuse to talk for fear of reprisals. “We don’t want to die,” is the typical response.Reporters Without Borders fears that media freedom will not survive the situation in Tamaulipas, which increasingly resembles that of Ciudad Juárez, a border city in Chihuahua state that is also prey to drug cartel violence.“It is true, there are five journalists who have been missing since last week but no one wants to say anything and God only knows where they are,” a local journalist said on condition of anonymity.The Tamaulipas State Attorney-General’s Office (PGJE) confirmed on 1 March that Miguel Angel Domínguez Zamora of the Reynosa-based daily El Mañana disappeared on 1 March but it says it has not received reports of any other journalists going missing. Reporters Without Borders failed to get a clear response when it contacted several local news media.Jorge Rábago Valdez, a journalist employed by the Radio-Rey and Reporteros en la Red radio networks, meanwhile died in disputed circumstances on 2 March in Reynoso. The PGJE said “he fainted as he was walking down the street and was taken to a hospital where he died.” But several media sources insist that he was kidnapped and tortured before being hospitalised and that he died as a result of the injuries he received at the hands of his abductors.Following the release on 3 March of two Milenio Televisión journalists who had been kidnapped in Reynoso, Milenio Televisión editorial director Ciro Gómez Leyva, wrote in an op-ed piece: “They were injured. They have decided not to say anything else. The message from the criminals is clear: ‘Don’t come and bother us’.” Gómez added: “Journalism is getting more and more difficult in Mexico. Journalism in Reynoso is dead. I have nothing more to say.” In a symbolic gesture, he left the rest of the column blank. Information can be fatal in Mexico. Rumours as well.Mexico is the western hemisphere’s deadliest country for the news media, with three journalists killed since the start of the year.

Triplemint moves into Westchester with Elliman team

first_imgThe New York City-based brokerage has been expanding its territory over the past 18 months, starting with a New Jersey firm it acquired in fall 2019. In spring 2020, Triplemint brought over broker Aaron Seawood and his team from Compass to lead its new Brooklyn office. In the summer, the firm launched in the Hamptons, a push led by Tyler Whitman, who’s become one of Triplemint’s most well-known brokers after joining Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing New York” show last year.Berkowitz said the conversation to join Triplemint began in January when the firm’s chief revenue officer, Eric Barron, reached out to them.He described the offer as an invitation to be “the new kids on the block” that seemed like a “fun trip” for the team.“What better energy is there than a new everything?” he said. “A new year, a new administration and a new move.”“We wish Carol and Owen the best of luck in their new endeavors,” said a spokesperson from Elliman.Contact Erin Hudson Message* TagsResidential BrokerageResidential Real EstateTri-stateTriplemint Email Address* Share via Shortlinkcenter_img Triplemint CEO David Walker with Carol Marrone and Owen Berkowitz (iStock)On the heels of a banner year for New York’s suburban housing market, Triplemint is expanding into Westchester County.Triplemint has tapped Douglas Elliman’s Owen Berkowitz and Carol Marrone to serve as founding agents for its Westchester business. The agents are bringing along their three-person team, which includes Susan Reddy, Michael Taraboulos and Matthew Marrone.The Westchester-based team has received Elliman’s Pinnacle Award, meaning that its annual gross commission income was among the top 2 percent of the company, every year since 2016. Last year, the team closed $60 million in sales, according to Berkowitz and Marrone.It’s an opportune time for an expansion into the Westchester market, which has seen a boon thanks to homebuyers hunting for more space. The region’s home sales last year were the highest since 1996 and, with low inventory, prices are skyrocketing. The median sales price for a single-family home in the county was up 20 percent year over year in the final quarter of 2020.But CEO David Walker said the timing of the expansion was related to finding the right agents to lead the effort.“Since the start, Triplemint’s expansion strategy has been about quality over quantity,launching with a people-first focus, rather than market-first,” he said in a statement.Read moreThe Covid churn: Inside resi brokerages’ recruiting gamesSeeking “a seat at the table,” Compass’ Aaron Seawood jumps to TriplemintTriplemint expands to New JerseyTriplemint triples down Full Name* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlinklast_img read more

Medway takes time to settle down business

first_imgA three-month review is under way at new company, Medway Foods, the business formed from a £7m management buyout (MBO) of four of Canterbury Foods’ pastry and food ingredients plants.Medway was set up after Canterbury went into administration on January 3, having failed to agree new terms for its £15m debt with its main backer, Barclays Bank. Medway is headed by ex-Canterbury Foods chief executive Paul Ainsworth, who told British Baker he would spend the next three months “settling the business down”. He commented: “We are now well-financed by GE Commercial Finance and I am sure the business will be cash-generative going forward. We will be doing it slowly; we are not ambitious to grow too quickly. Having effectively saved 200 jobs, I want to take a long look and ensure the future business plan keeps everyone employed.”Ranges will remain the same while the review takes place, he added, with a new head office set up in Whitstable, Kent. AIM-listed Canterbury had a “difficult start to the year”, after financial backers unexpec-tedly called in the administrators, he said. “Getting the letter in my hand, saying the bank had withdrawn its backing, was quite a shock. We had contingency plans in place, including an MBO deal, since the end of November, and this seemed the best option.” The MBO covers three plants in the Isle of Sheppey, Whistable and Bridgend, and saves 200 jobs.Administrator PriceWater-houseCoopers is still looking for a buyer for Canterbury Foods’ remaining cooked meats business, in Yate, near Bristol.last_img read more
