I was told that he RFL sent out a tweet post MPG. Congratulating Toronto Wolfpack on their victory and winning promotion back to the Super League. Well I did not believe that even they were that stupid but, low and behold a little bit of digging and their it was. What a joke the RFL are making of our sport.

JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

It was posted on twitter 3 mins after the end of the game by the rfl. To me it shows what we said all along they wanted Toronto not us in SL and we spoilt their party and created our own

Most of their side have been in SL before.......with Leigh, so technically accurate 8)
