PREMIERSHIP Rugby CEO Simon Massie-Taylor insists there will be no favour shown to any club in terms of punishment for entering administration.

It comes following Lawrence Dallaglio's comments on BT Sport on Sunday, where the former Wasps number eight seemed to suggest that his old club should be given special treatment if they were to enter administration, despite Worcester Warriors already being relegated for the same reason by the RFU last week.

"The RFU, they’ll say that any club that’s in administration has to go the same way as Worcester but the reality is, do you want to lose one of the biggest brands in club rugby, in world rugby and one of the brands that’s been one of the most successful sides in the Premiership?," said Dallaglio on BT Sport on Sunday evening.

"Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that. It’s worrying times for all rugby fans.

"Each club is very different. I can’t really comment on Worcester and the reasons why the RFU have decided to suspend them and push them towards the Championship.

"They can, of course, appeal that. Many of their players are now finding employment elsewhere."

But Massie-Taylor insists consistency from the RFU has to be applied to the situation.

"Whatever happens has to happen to any club, we have to be consistent," he said to the Worcester News on Monday.

"There will not be a new set of rules for Wasps as there were for Worcester.

"Wasps' circumstances are different but the rules are the same, they will not change."

Wasps stand on the brink of administration after they confirmed a second notice of intention to appoint administrators last week.

The Coventry-based club owe a £2m tax-bill to the HMRC (Worcester's bill was £6m) but Wasps are also in debt of a £35 million bond which had helped finance the club’s relocation to Coventry during 2014.

Their future, as do Worcester's, remains uncertain.

But Massie-Taylor says he is encouraged by talks with the interested parties in buying the rugby club.

"My message to Worcester is that the long-term future of the club is now the major focus for Premiership Rugby and the RFU," added Massie-Taylor.

"There was pressure on everyone to find a quick solution. With the RFU’s decision we have now time to really focus on the best long term outcome.

"We have been working closely with the administrator and have also been engaging directly with interested parties.

"From the discussions I have had, they are people who seem to have a big interest in the club commercially as well as the long term sporting success of the club, which is what is now required.

"The downside, which is extremely disappointing, is that Worcester are not playing and a lot of people have been made unemployed. But we need to find the right long term solution and not rush to quick fixes”
