The backers of Pontypool rugby club have been given a week to find up to £250,000 to cover a potential legal bill or face being relegated.
The club are fighting a High Court battle to prevent the Welsh Rugby Union relegating them under a reorganisation of Premiership rugby.
It would see see the number of teams reduced from 14 to 12, with Pontypool set to be one of the teams to lose out.
The court was told today that the club cannot meet the WRU's costs if it loses. They have until next Thursday to prove they can pay or the case will not continue.
