Steve Diamond last night fumed that Worcester had been allowed to ‘walk itself to the graveyard’ as he urged his players to treat today’s tie with Newcastle as if it is their last game at Sixways.

The Warriors will fulfil the fixture then have a squad night out, before bracing themselves to be suspended from all competitions.

Worcester have until 5pm on Monday to satisfy the RFU that they have the funds and plans to remain viable, but there is a strong chance they will go into administration that day. ‘We are in limbo from Monday,’ said Diamond, the club’s director of rugby. ‘We have been in near-purgatory for a while and it is starting to come to a head.

I am going to have a look at some places in the sun in the next fortnight if we are suspended. I might give the players time off, but whether they can afford to go on holiday is another matter.
