Pontypool RFC has lost its High Court bid for reinstatement to the Premiership league.
The club has battled against the Welsh Rugby Union's decision to drop it from the league, following a 12-team reorganisation.
The club now face a legal costs bill estimated at around £400,000. Today, a senior judge said the club should have accepted an offer from the WRU to allow it to drop the case weeks ago.
Earlier today the defending barrister indicated that there was a chance Pontypool could play in the Premiership. However, the WRU barrister has disputed this claim, saying that the league will include the Carmarthen Quins.
