Not confirmed and I don't think it will be.
Latest update on the stadium over there was that the work would be completed in June at some point, so the game against Leigh in May looks to be doubtful.

No official word from Toronto yet though.


Leigh play Toronto away on the 30th June. The May fixture is the summer bash @ Blackpool. :thumb:

The game at Blackpool in May will be decisive. I can see Leigh getting taken to the cleaners by Toronto, and suffering a decline in confidence that will affect their performances thereafter.
Toulouse for Championship in 2017, Super League in 2021!

Avignon for Championship in 2021, Super League in 2022!

Leigh are starting to look like challengers for the middle 8's and although a top 2 finish may be just out of reach (maybe), they look like making the middle 8's
Should be an exciting end to the season but, it's still a huge ask for any of the Championship clubs to come through the middle 8's and gain promotion.
Who would the neutrals want to gain promotion

Toronto
London
Toulouse
Featherstone
Leigh

Which of these would add most value to the comp and on the flip side, we have

Salford
Widnes
KR
Huddersfield
Catalan

Which of these sides add least to Super League

Will anyone get promoted or will it be "as you were" ?

The Championship is the right level for Leigh and Featherstone. It would be great if Toronto, Toulouse and London all gained promotion. However I think only Toronto will gain promotion (if Super League 2019 stays as 12 clubs) with only a small possibility of either London or Toulouse joining them in 2019.

And you're off again 'looking for a reaction'.

The bookies aren't often wrong, and the second favourites for the Championship are Fev. Leigh's awful start has done for them regarding the top spot, but they'll be stronger when it gets to the M8's. London and TO have no chance of promotion, and neither do Fev or Fax. Toronto and Leigh have the potential, but it would need an implosion from a current SL team (aka Catalans) for that to happen.

At the moment I'd predict a MPG between Cats and one of Toronto or Leigh.
