Cannot understand why the club can't keep us up to date more often.
Presumably because, in common with most corporate sales I've come across, there's a non-disclosure clause in the heads of terms.
These deals don't run to a timetable, unless both sides have shedloads of cash to keep teams of advisers on tap at all times.
I would have assumed that both sides would have advisors on no completion no fee - its tough out there and most will play on the at basis. If the case the advisors will throw whats necessary at it to get their bit done if drop dead dates looming even if lawyers like a bit of last minute suspense
After all it cant be the most difficult company in the world to buy once you are happy with your DD, unless there is a wrinkle as discussed yesterday with LW, the RFU and pre packed admin or the consortium ist quite there yet
