When it looks like a pig, walks like a pig, smells like a pig, sounds like a pig ...
You have to think it is what the events seem to suggest.
One has to be suspicious that the new Wasps Owners and Atlas stitched this up the minute the RFU said NO to them being owners of WW, and that said proposal was in the hands of the RFU pretty soon after. Who, one has to suspect, said 'Yes'.
It suits the RFU.
It means one less team in the Championship.
It keeps the one with the 'long and proud' history alive.
It utilizes a premiership standard ground.
It gives Wasps time to get a ground and keep them more in the Coventry area in the longer run.
It removes the objections that Wasps are moving in to Warrior's territory, as the warriors demise was announced before, as luck would have, now here come Wasps to the now vacant ground.
It makes it easier to get a squad together for just the one team.
Wasps rugby creditors will get paid.
It has the downside that WW rugby creditors do not get paid, but their rugby creditors were not as large as those of Wasps, who will get paid.
It rescues a local club (Stourbridge) who were likely going under.
The big losers are WW fans, and the government.
