Premiership salary cap cheats could still face action following a stormy board meeting last week.
I revealed last Sunday that the affair was set to be swept under the carpet by the owners at their annual pre-season meeting. But I now understand that the investigation into three leading clubs breaching salary cap regulations is back on.
I am told that as a result of the meeting that Bath owner Bruce Craig is stepping down as vice-chairman of Premier Rugby Limited.
Craig, above, has been a hugely influential figure over the last few years, especially in gaining clubs greater power to run their own commercial affairs.
A forward thinker in the game, Craig was also at the forefront of negotiations to form the Rugby Champions Cup during their bitter divorce with ERC.
