I'm hearing rumours of a big news story about to break about a Premiership club with financial problems and it isn't us...

Anyone heard anything?

Just that Worcester have apparently had problems when it comes to paying suppliers and players in recent times - I'm sure many others here will have heard the same.

That'd be my guess, anyway.

Must be Sarries.  They've just been told they will be relegated again if they pay all their players what they've promised next season.

Worcester or Newcastle would be my bet.

It has been all over Twatter for about 10 days or so that a club not far to the West of us has not paid players or small suppliers. This was confirmed by a Warriors fan on DW a few days ago.

Thinks it's fairly public that Worc are having issues, but no-one wants to talk about them as much as they do Wasps.
Is any attention better than no attention?

I'll be surprised if anyone other than Bristol and Bath aren't having problems, and I only exclude them because of the individual wealth of their owners.

Covid has been brutal for all the clubs.

Per the other comments, though, suspect in this case it's Worcester. We shall see - hopefully not enough to put them out of business, wouldn't wish that on anyone.

One of their fans popped up in one of the threads and talked about their problems and it doesn’t look good.

I was at our game there last season with a friend who has family who’ve been life long STH. When I met them they were quite distraught at the financial situation and didn’t expect the club to last.

My understanding is that Worcester have been paying players, just doing so late.

I hope this isn't a knock on effect of Sarries cheating.

I think it could easily be Worcester. Hope there is a way through it for them.
