DONE: Bath close in on signing Worcester trio

Bath RFC are ready to raid financially struggling Worcester Warriors, according to The Rugby Paper.

Rugby transfer guru Neil Fissler revealed today that the black, blue and whites have launched a sensational bid to take captain Ted Hill, Ollie Lawrence and Rory Sutherland to The Rec on short-term loans. 

Warriors were suspended from the Premiership after the club failed to meet a Rugby Football Union funding ultimatum last Monday.

As a result, the men’s team were banned from the Premiership and the women’s side from the Premier 15s.

Warriors have become the first Premiership club to go into administration since Richmond in 1999.

Administration means the men’s side could be sanctioned with either a points deduction or relegation.
