- Director of rugby: ‘We are on the never-never’
- Club’s owners insist sale will be announced ‘in 48 hours’
Worcester’s director of rugby, Steve Diamond, says his team “cannot keep going” in the Gallagher Premiership beyond the next few days unless a deal can be done to ease the club’s increasingly acute cashflow crisis. There are fears the Warriors’ weekend loss to Exeter could be the last league fixture the club is able to fulfil without urgent fresh investment.
In a statement released on Sunday, the club’s owners insisted a new buyer was still keen to take over and that a formal announcement of a sale would be forthcoming “in the next 48 hours”. Within the club, however, trust has virtually evaporated and there is not even enough money available to register loan players with the Rugby Football Union before Wednesday’s Premiership Cup fixture against Gloucester.
