The reason for releasing him early was to take him off counting towards this year's salary bill as he hasn't played a game for them.

That incentive has now gone as they have admitted they can't get under the cap.
Liam is no longer a Saracens player 

Care to elaborate Scarletnut ?

Saracens have already confirmed he’s no longer with them.
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

If that's the case then he would be an extremely useful addition during our QF and league run in. 
We're still still here!

In order to gain promotion you must show 2 seasons of staying within the premiership salary rules... If this season doesn't fit in then they don't get promoted next season.

They have to reduce wage bill this year or face an extra season in championship and then possibly oblivion
Really? Do you have a link to anything that shows this. Have tried to look through the actual regulations but it’s all written in such a complicated way that I can’t really understand it.

I only have the Twitter thread, there's some copy and pasted snippets with rules etc further down the thread. 

Nothing is set in stone these days, they could well move the goalposts although I don't see them doing much to help Series at the moment.

Was hoping to see Sanjay start at FB for us on 15th but no chance of that now. On that subject is there any news of his contract situation for the rest of this season? It appears to have gone quiet. Scarletnut advised us that he was no longer a Saracens player so something official must have happened.

I appreciate it isn't an official position, but he's still listed as a Saracens player on their website and I can see no release suggesting he's no longer employed by them?  


Despite our excitement to see him in a Scarlet shirt again, it doesn't look like his current injury situation is positive news and Wales are going to run the rule over him over the next few weeks regardless of his Saracens position. 

Would love to see him turn out in Toulon mind Wink

I guess that now Sarries are def relegated they don't need to worry about getting under the salary cap for this season - so therefore as long as they remain in the Champions Cup they no doubt won't want to let him go

If Sanjay hasn’t recovered fully to play for Wales, why don’t they release him to us to continue his rehab? 
Only one team plays in red. (Sorry, Scarlet)

It may be that their books have to be clean for 2 full years before they're admitted back to the Premiership, so they're trying to get under the cap ASAP.

I would imagine it's because they have their own medics physios  and equipment probably better than ours tbh
 
if was fit to play he'd be playing for wales. If they thought he just needed game time he would get released I just think he is not fit enough to play for region or nation just yet
 
Pivac will have a good working relationship with the scarlets, if he gets match fit in-between the internationals I would imagine he would get a game with us (subject to paper work etc being completed)
 
it suits us, wales and the player

  Sanjay was pencilled in to be in matchday squad against Edinburgh, lets hope Liam as not had a relapse .
  I believe the paperwork as been finalised and Liam is a Scarlet player .

We could do with a genuine option for fullback against Edinburgh, to have a world class one would be great.
