Eddie Jones freshens up England squad for Six Nations

Jason Ryles will join from Australian rugby league side Melbourne Storm as the replacement for Borthwick, England said Monday, a week after the Rugby Football Union announced two more coaches were coming into Jones' staff for the new Rugby World Cup cycle.

British media reported on Friday that Saracens were to receive another 35-point deduction.

It remains unclear if those titles will remain in place or be stripped, as was the case when the Melbourne Storm were found to have rorted the NRL's salary cap for years, during which they won two premiership that were ultimately taken off them.

Griffiths, who presided over the meeting, had admitted the club needed to make wage reductions or release players in order to comply with salary cap regulations.

"They suspect a broken arm", said Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall.

"Our goal is to rebuild confidence and trust".


His injury heaped more misery on the English champions, who on Saturday had been told they would be relegated at the end of the season for salary cap breaches.

"At the same as enforcing the existing regulations, we want to ensure a level playing field for all clubs in the future, which is why we have asked Lord Myners to carry out an independently-led review of the Salary Cap".

'We have another opportunity to build the greatest team rugby has ever seen.

Neil Golding, chairman of Saracens, said: "As the new Chairman of Saracens I acknowledge the club has made errors in the past and we unreservedly apologise for those mistakes". But domestically, they have just five months left in the Premiership before exiting it and joining English rugby union's second tier alongside clubs like Ampthill, Jersey and Hartpury.

At the moment England pick only players from the Premiership. However, the club have now accepted the decision to play in the Championship next season.

The Champions Cup quarter-finals have thrown up a repeat of last year's decider as Leinster are to be re-united with Saracens following the conclusion of the pool phase this afternoon.
