- Air of resignation surrounding Exiles’ rugby future
- Deadline of 4pm for London Irish to finalise takeover
The final curtain is set to fall on London Irish on Tuesday as the Premiership awaits the latest sad development in a grim domestic season. The Exiles have been given until 4pm (BST) to finalise their long-mooted American takeover and there is a heavy sense of resignation in the air.
It is understood the Rugby Football Union will make a formal announcement at around 7pm on Tuesday once it has been confirmed whether or not Irish have satisfied the two key requirements they were ordered to meet last week. The RFU either wants to see conclusive proof of the proposed takeover or receive a commitment from the club’s owner, Mick Crossan, that he will continue to fund the club next season. The players and staff are still awaiting 50% of their May salaries.
