Well. It is. It’s quite clear that a lot of the antipathy towards Toronto comes from fans of clubs that have dominated on or off the pitch by Toronto.

Surely you’d want them to do well and succeed? Like Salford? Surely no-one wants any club to fail do they?


Yes, and I hope it encourages more North American clubs to join the RFL, and eventually they will outnumber English clubs in Super League. That is my dream.

they are the talk on the town because they are from another country, and got lots of cash to spend. Oh, and their owner is a racist, you okay with that ?
If (for example) Castleford had signed SBW, it would have been a headline for a day, maybe.


Could be worse. Their owner could make fun of another team going bust months before his own team did.

Stephanie, we 'went bust' in administration in 2002. I don't recall owner Mike Nolan making fun of anybody.

It will have a great crowd, not only with the thousands of Canadian fans and the thousands of French fans making the trip, but also with the tens of thousands of British fans wanting to be part of history, especially given the likely presence of Sonny Bill Williams.
