Top 14 Rugby bosses dock Bourgoin five points

French Top 14 Rugby bosses deducted Top 14 strugglers Bourgoin five points due to their worrying financial situation.

The Club’s lawyer says that they would appeal the sanction which would leave Bourgoin with just five points after 15 matches.

If five points were deducted from Bourgoin they would trail nearest rivals La Rochelle by 16 points and 17 points behind the third last Brive.

Under Top 14 rules the bottom two clubs are relegated so the deduction would almost gaurantee their relegation.

Bourgoin forcasted end-of-season debts of around 1.5 million euros which is around 10 percent of their annual budget.
