Worcester Warriors players have contracts terminated

A 22-second high court hearing has ended with the contracts of all players, backroom staff, administrative staff, and the women’s squad, having been immediately terminated.

Staff were still owed 35% of their wages from August, with no one getting paid in September at all.

Warriors director of rugby Steve Diamond was grave in his statement released on Twitter earlier:

“This is the darkest day for English rugby,”  “We thought we could turn the tanker around but it’s ended up like the Titanic, sadly. The ship has sunk, the captains are nowhere to be seen.”

The Warriors battled hard right to the end, with a set of players even coming in earlier on before the new, despite what was happening elsewhere.

Players, fans and pundits have been quick to express their disappointment at the news.
