Robin Walker to ask DCMS to sanction putting club into administration
Worcester MP Robin Walker will call on the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport to sanction putting Worcester Warriors into administration.
Walker will ask the government to intervene at the beleaguered Premiership club when he addresses Parliament at 17:00 BST on Thursday.
Saturday’s visit of Newcastle will go ahead after the Rugby Football Union was satisfied over safety issues.
Warriors also face an RFU funding ultimatum by 17:00 BST on Monday.
“Enough is enough,” Walker, whose constituency contains Warriors’ Sixways Stadium, told BBC Hereford & Worcester.
“We need to see action taken to save this club to make sure people are properly paid. We need to make sure they have proper support.
“They don’t seem to be getting that from the owners at the moment.”
Many of the club’s non-playing staff have only been paid 65% of their August salaries, while others have not received any at all.
