Wasps and Worcester not replaced in European Challenge

The English teams of Wasps and Worcester, placed in receivership and who were to compete in the European Challenge, will not be replaced, announced Wednesday the European Professional Club Rugby (EPCR), organizer of the European Rugby Cups.

The EPCR preferred to change its timetable rather than “call on other teams, hoping to see Wasps and Worcester again very soon”said Dominic McKay, the boss of the EPCR, during the launch in London of the 2022-2023 season of the two European competitions, the European Cup and the European Challenge, the first days of which are scheduled for December 9 to 11. . Hen Bwhere the two English clubs were, is therefore reduced to eight (ten in Pool A), while the event will host, for the first time, two South African franchises.
