Another one on the rocks

Can’t believe London Welsh are in administration! They went fully pro last year and already the wheels have started to come off. Apparently they only have enough money to run for 1 more month.

A sorry state of affairs. I hope they can survive. I wonder if the WRU can step in and support them. Who knows!

    Over 200 of us have pledged support and money is pouring in as well as the major funding being set up by the consortium (Andy Lewis-Pratt and Richard Lamb and aothers). About another £100K needs to be secured now to get all the funding in place for three seasons.

    This is more than just the professional side and the consortium and supporters club are committed to the amateur and junior sections too !

    I don’t want to tempt the fates but it is looking a bit brighter. Monday 6th is the day when RFU require proof that all funding is in place.
