London Welsh: Some of the greatest moments from the club's glory days

A winding-up petition issued against London Welsh, for an unpaid tax bill of more than £90,000, has been adjourned until next month.

Officials at HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) had asked for the Exiles to be wound up at a Bankruptcy and Companies Court hearing in London on Monday.

But Registrar Christine Derrett adjourned the application until January 23 to give creditors time to meet.

Championship side Welsh entered voluntary liquidation last week.

They were disqualified from the British and Irish Cup after being unable to raise a side for Saturday's tie against Doncaster Knights.
