& # 39; But for us we just have to hold on to our values, hold on to our beliefs and know that it makes no sense to feel sorry for yourself.
& # 39; We just have to make sure that we try to help the players and the team. The players hear the fans.
& # 39; Today was not a fair reflection of this group. I can't sit here and do anything other than raise my hands. That is where we are now. & # 39;

& # 39; We want to strengthen and we know it has to. We let some players go because we had to start again. We know that we need quality and figures.
& # 39; I think everyone can see that these players are being stretched. They are stretched and I have absolutely no complaints about any of them because they give absolutely everything they have. & # 39;

& # 39; Something will happen, but I'm not sure if now or at the end of the season. & # 39;

TRAVEL STATES UNTIL THIS SEASON
& # 39; And if Real Madrid comes, I would consider it the same, & he added.

& # 39; I didn't go out in the best way, but I don't regret the decision to leave. & # 39;
& # 39; It is true that we are talking about it & # 39 ;: Barcelona boss Quique Setien admits that the club may have to sign a new striker this month after a knee injury by Luis Suarez
& # 39; I was surprised that we didn't have the power … but we don't have that & # 39 ;: Premier Rugby Chief to look at changing rules after he revealed that he couldn't get rid of Saracens' titles
- The head of the Rugby Premiership was surprised that his organization could not act
- Regulations state that retrospective measures can be taken against Saracens
- Saracens opted for relegation instead of opening their books for forensic audit
The outrageous champions are relegated at the end of the season, after they have already received 35 points and £ 5.4 million.
Many in the English game want Saracens to lose the titles they won in 2018 and 2019 when they exceeded the £ 7 million limit, but Childs, who took up his position in September last year confirmed that scope for taking retroactive action.
& # 39; The regulations do not allow it, & # 39; he said. "I was surprised that we didn't have the power to do that, but we don't. We have to approach it on that basis, but looking at future regulations, that is definitely at the top of the agenda. & # 39;
Childs gave late clarity about the decision to degrade Saracens, which was announced Saturday without any explanation of the trial. The club has been unable or unwilling to prove that they operate within the cap this season.
"The November verdict was about previous years and relegation is about this year," Childs said. "Relegation became inevitable due to the fact that Saracens consistently failed to demonstrate that they met the salary limit this season – and we had no approval for them to undergo a mid-season forensic audit."
When PRL threatened their audit in a & # 39; non-voluntary manner & # 39; Saracens agreed to go down instead of carefully checking their bills, suggesting that the club is currently far above the cap and needs time to cut back, and Childs added: "Yes , I think you could make that summary. That is not an illogical conclusion. & # 39;
Amidst widespread rumors about other clubs using dubious tactics to prevent the cap from being violated, including misuse of the loan system, Childs stressed that no other club is being investigated or suspected.
He was adamant that the cap must be retained and believes that tightening the prescriptions will have the desired effect, and adds: & # 39; We had to clean this up. Such a thing should never happen again. & # 39;
At this stage, any prospect of fencing the Premiership is off the agenda again, but a revision of the limit is under discussion. Childs said: & # 39; There are different views of different clubs – some think it's too high, some think it's too low and others, who won't be in our league next season, think we shouldn't have a salary limit & # 39;
Meanwhile, RFU chief Bill Sweeney has confirmed that the Union will not take additional action against Saracens, and for the time being there is no plan to review the policy that England should select players abroad. He also rejected the idea that this episode could lead to a central contract model being considered.
Leicester finally confirmed on Tuesday, after months of speculation, that Steve Borthwick will leave the England line-up after the Six Nations to become their new head coach.

& # 39; He is so hungry. I think it's only Jadon Sancho as a teenager who has scored more goals than he in the top five competitions, so he's someone who definitely has something in him.
& # 39; We are lucky to have him and if he is wearing about improving the way he is, then it will be very difficult to hold him.
& # 39; If they can create opportunities, the way he enters the field, he will score goals and that is what we need to focus on Arsenal, make more goals and create more opportunities. & # 39;

Wilder said: & I understand the modern world of football agents and their relationship with players. I have said it long enough – I always believe that players should become the owners of their own career.
& # 39; But they pay agents to guide them, sometimes realistic, sometimes unrealistic. I'm a little surprised. & # 39;

& # 39; I know it will be a bit of negotiation, & # 39; Wilder added. & # 39; You just want to pack it all up, I think the players will pack it too.

& # 39; But we are nowhere near, but as I said from my point of view and from the point of view of the players, they want to get that done as quickly as possible. & # 39;

& # 39; With the way my body has been, I cannot take all of this for granted because it could be my last match & # 39 ;: Mark Wood flavors return to England and admits that he moment trying to enjoy, given his injury misery over the year
Mark Wood enjoyed his remarkable all-round return to international cricket by admitting he treats every appearance in England as if it might be his last.
Wood, missing since the World Cup Final in July with a side injury, added the first two wickets of the South African second innings to his 42 off 23 balls when England struck and even an excellent catch was about to leave Give Joe Root one of his four wickets.
Then a man who has been plagued with injury problems and had four operations on his chronic left ankle spoke about getting the best out of every game in England while he can.
& # 39 "I love this & # 39;" said the fast bowler from Durham. & # 39; I have not played since July, so I tried to enjoy it and absorb everything. With the way my body has been, I cannot take all of this for granted because it could be my last game. I had a lot of fun, even if I milked that catch! & # 39;
Wood paid homage to England's unlikely bowling hero at Root, who took four to 31, while South Africa crashed to 102 for six after he made them, follow 290 behind.
& # 39; I think Rooty does not know himself well because he is captain, & # 39; said Wood. & # 39; I don't know if you've seen him in practice, but he does a lot more bowling and we all hope he'll get his five-wicket tomorrow. Mind you, he bent well, didn't he? He put the young Dom Bess at the non-revolving end. The captain is not stupid, is it? & # 39;
The humor of the popular Wood was also clear when asked if England was worried about another uncertain weather forecast today after three hours of the fourth day lost due to rain in the Eastern Cape.
& # 39; Don't! & # 39; he said. & # 39; I thought Africa was the sunniest place in the world and then I come here and it's just like Durham. I would lie if I said I wasn't worried a little, but we are in a warm country and the wind is blowing here so hopefully it will dry up soon when it rains. & # 39;
Wood admitted he is far from certainly fit enough to play in the second from back to back Tests that complete this series on the fast and jumpy field of the Wanderers in Johannesburg on Friday.
& # 39; I really don't know when I will play, & he added. & # 39; It's too far to know, especially with my body. I am a bit tired now but I have a good night's sleep and I will be out tomorrow. First, let's get this job done. & # 39;
