London Welsh enter liquidation but given temporary licence for next two fixtures

London Welsh have formally entered liquidation but will be able to fulfil their next two fixtures against London Scottish and Yorkshire Carnegie.

A new company has been granted a temporary licence by the Rugby Football Union to enable the Exiles to play, allowing additional time to satisfy criteria for a permanent replacement company to compete in the remainder of the Greene King IPA Championship season.

London Welsh are automatically deducted 20 points as a consequence of going into liquidation and have until January 16 to supply the required information for the RFU board to determine whether the new company can continue to operate.
