Premiership Rugby v Worcester Warriors

Premiership Rugby v Worcester Warriors

A decision in the matter of Premiership Rugby v Worcester Warriors has been issued by the independent panel.

Worcester Warriors and Gloucester Rugby had a Gallagher Premiership Rugby match fixture scheduled to be played on Friday 25 March 2022 at 7.45pm. However, Worcester Warriors were unable to field the required six front row players, resulting in the cancellation of the fixture.

An independent panel was appointed by Sport Resolutions to determine this matter, comprised of Sir Gary Hickinbottom (Chair), Carol Couse and Jonathan Rennie. The Panel decided that under regulation 4.4(j)(iii), the match result shall be 20-0 in favour of Gloucester; and that, in respect of the Match, Gloucester shall be awarded 5 league points.

A full reasoned decision will be published in the upcoming days.
