Widnes have entered administration, can’t pay the staff and Sunday’s match against Sheffield called off. Out of the frying pan and into the fire for KP, unfortunately.

CL, I don’t think Widnes are in administration yet, they have till Monday to find a buyer, so there is still time yet, hopefully whatever happens they can sort something out .

I thought Widnes stated the Sheffield match would continue as planned. Obviously something has changed to effect that.

Not quite sure what the good doctor had planned or why he/consortium got shown the door.

Shame because someone has budgeted on this season using investment that wasn’t there to start with.

Seagulls did exactly the same when turning fully pro.

I just get the feeling, not everything is being said or who actually pulled out.

Feel for the fans/players and all the staff,but certainly seems mismanagement is to blame.

Hopefully they'll find a way out of this mess.

Given that we play them at least 3 time this season, selfishly I wonder where this leaves us too.

Harrison Hansen, Liam Hood back, or are they out of our price bracket now?
