BORDERER Rory Sutherland could be heading back to Scotland to play his club rugby.

Sutherland is one of a number of Worcester Warriors players who may be released from their contracts tomorrow Wednesday October 5 2022 when a winding-up order issued by HM Revenue and Customs is due to be heard in the high court.

And the much sought-after loosehead prop has already been linked with a number of clubs should he become a free-agent, including both Edinburgh Rugby and Glasgow Warriors.

Other clubs showing an interest in the 28-year-old include revamped Bath, European Challenge Cup winners Lyon, fellow French club Castres, Cardiff and Ulster.

Sutherland joined the Warriors from Edinburgh Rugby in the summer of 2021 while he was on tour of South Africa with the British and Irish Lions.

Two consortiums, one involving former Worcester chief executive Jim O’Toole, are understood to have expressed interest in buying the club out of administration.

The club’s owners Colin Goldring and Jason Whittingham could ask the high court for a 14-day extension in a bid to offer a chance for any prospective club buyers to retain staff.
