The RFU must ratify the proposal, under which £500,000 raised by groups ranging from the local council to the club’s supporters would be used to buy its assets.
The Guardian reported club captain Jacob Rauluni as saying any refusal to agree the proposal would be a ‘black mark’ against the RFU.
Jacksons Joliffe Cork, licensed insolvency practitioners of Wakefield and McCormack solicitors, who are acting for the club, will also be nervously awaiting the RFU’s decision, which is due on Wednesday.
Rotherham’s directors had previously set a date of 16 September for the club to enter into liquidation.
