Wasps Fined For Breaking Premiership Salary Cap

Over the limit.

Premiership Rugby have today confirmed that following the completion of the independent audit of salary spend for the 2016-17 Season, it was established that Wasps had overrun their limit by £40,528.

In accordance with the regulations, at this level of excess the club will pay 50p per £1, meaning they will pay a fine totalling £20,264.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE

“This is not a breach of the Regulations and there is no suggestion it was deliberate,” said a Premiership Rugby spokesman.

“A number of adjustments were identified by the independent auditors which resulted in the overrun. These have now been addressed.”
