Wasps Women play their home games in Acton

Wasps and Worcester women’s teams have been given permission by the Rugby Football Union to continue playing.

Their future has been thrown into doubt after the companies that control the men’s parties went into administration.

But now they can both play in the Allianz Cup on Saturday and remain in 15th place in the Allianz Premier standings.

The University of Worcester Warriors travel to Gloucester Hartpury, while Wasps host Saracens at their usual home ground at Twyford Avenue in Acton.

The RFS was satisfied that funding and insurance were in place to host future matches.

Interim funding for Worcester Ladies has been secured from a local company to keep the club playing until at least Christmas.

They can continue to play at Sixways on a temporary license while administrators try to sell the club.

Wasps Women have always been attached to amateur club Wasps FC, who play at the club’s traditional heartland in west London.

As such, they are not affected by the demise of the men’s team, the RFS assured that minimum working standards will be maintained.

Wasps and Worcester men’s teams have been suspended until the end of the season and administrators are in talks to sell both clubs.
