WORCESTER Warriors boss Alan Solomons does not want Saracens’ fight against their punishment for salary cap breaches to drag on too long.

Solomons stressed that it was important to have “clarity sooner rather than later” as he felt it was “better for all concerned to know where everybody stands”.

Saracens are facing a 35-point deduction and £5.36million fine by Premiership Rugby after a nine-month investigation found that they had broken the rules.

But the London club intend to appeal against all the findings meaning the sanctions which they described as “heavy handed” will be suspended.

A final verdict is now not expected until next year but Solomons wants it to be cleared up as soon as possible.

“It is always good to have clarity sooner rather than later,” said Solomons who was a lawyer before pursuing a professional rugby coaching career.

“It is better for all concerned to know where everybody stands.”

An independent three-person panel led by a former Supreme Court judge ruled that Saracens had “failed to disclose payments to players in each of the seasons 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19”.

The reigning Gallagher Premiership champions were also found to have “exceeded the ceiling for payments to senior players in each of the three seasons”.

Solomons was reluctant to comment on the findings, insisting: “I don’t know the detail of what has happened.”

But he backed Warriors’ statement on Tuesday where owners Colin Goldring and Jason Whittingham said they supported the action taken by Premiership Rugby.

“Colin and Jason have made the point and that’s exactly the same point as I am making,” Solomons said.

“There is sound reasoning behind the regulations. They are there for a good reason.

“They have been formulated by Premiership Rugby so therefore they have the support of all the clubs and we all have to abide by them.

“It is as simple as that.”

Each Premiership team is limited to a £7million salary cap along with two additional marquee players for the campaign.

Premiership Rugby has not disclosed how much money Saracens were found to have breached the cap by but under article 14.3 of the salary cap regulations it must exceed £650,000 to trigger the maximum 35-point penalty.

“There is an amount that you can spend and outside the cap you can have two marquee players,” Solomons said.

“The regulations set out exactly what you can and can’t do and what the credits are.

“I don’t know the details of what has happened (with Saracens).

“They have been found to have breached those regulations and there are consequences to that obviously.

“They are going to appeal and that’s as much as I know.

“I am not sure how it all works and what that applies to.”

Asked whether he had his suspicions that Sarries had breached the salary cap, Solomons added: “I tend to focus on Worcester Warriors.

“We have got enough on our plate without me worrying about everybody else.”
