Published 28 August 2018 By: Christopher Stoner QC
The article is the second of two pieces by the author on Premiership Rugby's Salary Cap Regulations for 2018/19 (the Regulations).
Their practical operation

The disciplinary process
The sanctions that may be applied
Other notable aspects of the Regulations
At the time of publishing, the Regulations for the 2018/2019 season are not yet available on the Premiership Rugby website (although they may be uploaded soon). The principal changes to the published Regulations have however all been well communicated (see here and here2). A copy of the Regulations for the 2016-2017 season (which the author refers to as the published Regulations) are available here.3
