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.
“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.”
