Worcester Warriors have released a statement in response to media reports that suggested the club’s location might be changed if it were to be sold.

“The Warriors Board can confirm that Sixways Holdings Limited would not consider selling the Club to investors who would move it away from Worcester.

“Despite reports in the media, Sixways Holdings Limited is clear in its intentions to ensure new investors keep the Club at its Sixways base.

“A condition of any sale would state that the Club must remain in Worcester.”

Warriors Chairman Bill Bolsover said: “Last week I was able to reassure supporters that it was highly unlikely that a new owner would relocate the Club.

“I can now confirm that selling the Club to investors who might want to move it away from Worcester is not something that Sixways Holdings Limited would consider.

“The West Midlands is the prime location for the Club to continue to engage and grow what is already a strong support-base in the area.

“Sixways Holdings Limited has invested significantly in the current facilities and will not risk the future stability of the Club by allowing it to be moved to another part of the country.”

All Blacks vs England takeaways: Richie Who? Time for Cortez

Correct analysis of Perofeta’s bungling of the try opportunity Ben. Never ‘fixed’ Steward as he came across in defence and passed too early. Steward didn’t have to break his stride and simply moved on to pressure Telea. Never scanned the easier option of passing to the two supporting players on the inside. Beauden Barrett showed how it is done when he put Telea in for his try. Another point from the game is that the rush defence is hard to maintain as the number of phases increases. From scrums the defensive line only contains backs who all have roughly the same pace. Once forwards are involved, the defence has players with variable speeds often leading to a jagged line. It also tends to lose pace overall giving the attack more time and space. Beauden Barrett’s break to set up Telea’s try came because Baxter went in to tackle McKenzie and Steward went out to cover Telea. Barrett has a massive hole to run through, then commits Steward by passing as late as possible and Telea scores untouched. Another comment I would make is that Ben Earl is a good player and generally an excellent defender but he made three significant misses in the series, two of which led to All Black tries. Got stepped by Perofeta in Dunedin for Savea’s try, missed McKenzie in Auckland leading to what should have been a certain try being set up by Perofeta and was one of the tacklers who couldn’t stop Savea in the leadup to Telea’s first try. Perhaps he should contact Owen Farrell to pick up a few tips from ‘tackle school’.
