Worcester Warriors' captain Ted Hill admits players may have to start assessing their options following the club entering administration on Monday afternoon.

After failing to meet the 5PM deadline by the Rugby Football Union, Warriors were suspended from rugby competition and shortly afterwards, the club were placed into administration as the request of the club's directors.

It is now a race against time for the administrators and potential buyers, which there are two, to ensure players' contracts are paid.

Skipper Hill admits that some difficult decisions may have to be made.

"I am sure people will be looking at all options as that's what, as a professional rugby player, you have to do," he said.

"You have to be prepared and make sure your families are looked after. These things are necessary but we are hopeful we can pull through.

"It's all been a difficult situation to be in.

"We know administration was necessary but very sad and we are hoping for some good news further down the line."

But will the players be able to leave? It was first reported by the Telegraph that the company that has been placed into administration is WRFC Trading Limited.

This was something the Rugby Player's Association has since confirmed.

The Worcester players are employed under the company WRFC Players Limited, which is not in administration, meaning they can't secure an immediate release from the club even if they wanted to.

Warriors began their season 2022/23 season with the financial crisis swirling around them and despite the fear of the unknown, Hill praised his side's commitment to continue playing.

"We have had insight before all games and we have had team meetings each week about whether the game will be on or off," he added.

"It's not good mentally for someone to go into a game wondering if they are going to have a job after this. It's mentally very difficult.

"But the boys have done an outstanding job, as have the coaches and backroom staff. They have done an excellent job.

Hill has not yet featured this season due to a minor hamstring tear and now, like other injured members of the squad, is having to continue rehab away from Sixways as the facility is now out of bounds due to the insurance running out.

"We have managed to get a schedule sent out through Worcester, where we can go and can link up with strength and conditioning and medical staff," said Hill

"People will be working hard behind the scenes to make sure we are given the help we need. It's not ideal but we are trying to make the best of a bad situation."
