SUPPORTERS of both Worcester Warriors and Wasps have been reacting to suggestions that a merger between the two clubs could be on the cards. 

Both former Premiership sides went into administration in 2022 and both have since, essentially, been liquidated as clubs.

Wasps and Worcester have been told by the RFU (Rugby Football Union) that they have until February 14 to submit an application to be in the Championship for the 2023/24 season.

But as of yet, neither club has any staff, players or coaches.

Warriors was sold to new owners last week in the form of Atlas Worcester Warriors RFC Ltd, which is led by former chief executive Jim O'Toole and ex-London Irish player James Sandford.

Sandford later said in a post-sale interview that they did have plans to bring 'elite level rugby' back to Sixways, regardless of whether or not the RFU approve of the takeover.

Back in December 2022, the RFU did not give their approval for the Atlas takeover due to insufficient information over funding. Atlas claimed the RFU were taking an 'over oneroud' stance on the bid.

That has since led to supporters wondering what that means and some have even began contemplating the idea that maybe Wasps and Worcester could merge to form a new club. 

This was the result of a poll on Twitter: 

And here are some of the reaction to the concept of 'Worcester Wasps' or maybe 'Wasps Warriors'. 

But some suggest that it maybe is the only real option.
