I can't believe that they could get away with that...... They want Bath to go to their ground and cheer for one of thier own players not to score? Lacks class if nothing else and not in the spirit of the game. This from the club who tried to drown out the Munster with the PA when they played there last year in the HC. Strange ways.

their home attendance record has been going steadily downhill for the last few years, obviosuly they've given up trying to entice more home support.

I think you misread it. If Henson scores the bath fans get a refund providing they live in Bath postal district. Doesn't make it any more tasteful though.
Wray and his backers invested millions in Saracens and their new stadium( they lost 5.6m and had turnover of just over 8m last season) in an effort to make sarries a successful franchise on and off the park. They picked Barnet to be their new home because it didn't have a big soccer or rugby franchise nearby. They sold out their home fixtures there for the half season they gave been there(cap 10k). However for thier first home game this season against Gloucester(well supported team) their official attendance figure was 9200 and looked a lot less on tv it was on a Sunday afternoon which is their fans stated preference also. It appears the honeymoon in Barnet may be over already and their marketing boys are being overworked again

they also had a money back for gloucester fans if they predicted who'd win the game.

I think we might have to consider increasing the salary cap ourselves.
