Just so you know, Paul Rowley is highly thought of here in Toronto.

Why no video ref?



I will answer it, Sky only provide commentary over a feed from a local broadcaster, there is no facility for a Video Ref. Instead they used the In Goal Judges, one of these was either blind or had no bottle or perhaps both.

The biggest farce that could come out of all of this is that TWP have a home game in the MPG... we don't have video refs as a result... and TWP get promoted to SL (worth £1m apparently) due to an in goal judge having the sun in his eyes (or whatever). It could happen...

Of course, London or TO could benefit from an equally poor decision, but that wouldn't make it right either.

I just hope that the team that deserves it gets promoted, and we don't have any sour grapes due to dodgy decisions.

When Toronto/Manchester Wolfpack get promoted, all the RFL directors will all have a mass.... :HAND:

How can you think that London, who defeated Toulouse BTW, will not finish above them? They have two SL sides to face, one in 5 days time after their transatlantic trip and the next away from he where they've struggled all year?.....
London will in all probability push Salford hard this Sunday before defeating Halifax.....London will face Toronto in Canada.....and if we get a decent referee, then anything is possible!
Toulouse and London will both be in the mix in 2019 to replace Toronto.....unless they move the goalposts again 8)



why? you previously said toulouse were cooked after london beat them! they were beaten by a call by the officals v toronto

no reason they cant compete against a Hull KR team who have conceded over 60 points to championship clubs in 3 games, take note fun time crunchie! toulouse away for HKR wont be a gimmie, sure they could win , but at home toulouse will give any team in the middle 8s a run for their money!

HKR could easily be 5th going into the last round, leeds already safe can put the cue on the wrack and play youngsters v toronto and lose, salford if they beat london, which they should do, then play toulouse with nothing to play for too! therefore HKR, with their poor points difference could end up back in the MPG!

1. They are cooked and won't win again. Was I wrong or did they lse?
2. They conceded a try that wasn't a try, but the missed conversion and the failure to take the 1 pointer on 3 separate occasions are more so the reason that they failed to win.....
3. I said they'd lose. Your opinion is just that...an opinion, my statement is thus far 100% accurate. :mrgreen:
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:

Your desperately trying to put us in the MPG aren’t you with your skewed facts yes we have conceded 60pts against championship sides but have beaten all of them along with going to headingley and winning there also
