THE new owners at Sixways will face questionning from supporters of Worcester Warriors on what is a crucial day in the club's history on Saturday.

Exactly six months on from the day the club was first issued that winding up petition by the HMRC, the fanbase will finally be able to have their say on what has happened in that time, and what is going to happen to the club going forward.

Jim O'Toole and James Sandford, who last week exchanged contracts with administrators Begbies Traynor over the sale of the rugby club, will face 550 people at Sixways on Saturday afternoon as they present their proposals for the future to those in attendance.

But the event will also enable supporters a chance to voice their concerns, mainly on Atlas' proposal to ditch the Worcester Warriors brand and form 'Sixways Rugby' with semi-professional club Stourbridge RFC.

Those proposals from Atlas, the company that looks set to take control at Sixways, have not gone down well with the fans or the wider rugby community.

Many had hoped Warriors would return to the Championship next season but that will not be happening after Atlas' decision to withdraw their Championship application, despite reporting a "positive" meeting with the RFU last weekend.

That decision left the RFU "with no regulatory means to enforce the payment of rugby creditors", meaning millions of pounds owed to staff, players, coaches and local sponsors would not be paid, which has also angered many in the local community.

So what questions will be asked? It's fair to say the name change will be top of the list, but what about Wasps, are they going to play at Sixways next season? What does the merger with Stourbridge look like, what happens if the RFU don't allow these proposals in any case?

Either way, there is much to discuss on Saturday and no doubt emotions will be running high as fans look to get the answers they so desperately crave.

The Worcester News will be running a live-blog throughout the event, bringing you all the reaction.
