What will happen to Worcester Warriors if they get relegated?

That's the question a lot of people have been asking around Sixways for a few weeks.

Results have of course improved and they now have a much better chance of not finishing bottom, but if they do, and if they go down, what would happen to the club?

Dave Bradley has been talking to Warriors Chairman and owner, Cecil Duckworth, about the state of affairs at Sixways.

Cecil Duckworth has appealed to supporters to stick with the club if they do go down.

"We hope that the supporters will stay with us – we've built up a great supporter base both home and away. 

"It's a great afternoon out and we hope they’ll continue to support us and help us get back, because if they didn't, then what would be the point of persevering?

"Financially the parachute payments help considerably, but it wouldn't be very good news if our supporters deserted us."


The Warriors relegation struggles come at a time when their home at Sixways is about to undergo a major redevelopment.

"We're just finalising the issues with regard to planning – there are a number of issues there that have to be addressed -  and I think we've ticked all the boxes there and we hope to complete that this week.

"Hopefully we can get on site sometime in May and get the infrastructure started, putting the road system in and then the park and ride. 

" This will then allow the supporter development to go ahead, and then our new north stand."
