After their comfortable victory over Toulouse yesterday, with a 42 - 14 victory, Toronto are now 6 points clear at the top and it looks like they can concentrate all their efforts on managing their squad for the final part of the season.
Things are starting to look straightforward for the Canadian side - no surprise really and the only obstacle is holding their nerve at the business end of the season.
I dont see anyone catching them and it will be all about whether they can win their grand final.

There is the prospect of them winning the league by 10 points and still not being guaranteed promotion.

St Helens are 6 points clear at the top of SL. There is the prospect of them topping the table by 10 points and still not winning SL.

There isnt one player in that Toronto team who would get in St Helens U19s, let alone our first team squad

Toronto's left centre Richard Leutele (formerly a regular NRL player at Cronulla) would walk into any Super League team, and Toronto's other centre Chase Stanley would get into many Super League sides. The same is true of Toronto's full back and many Toronto forwards, such as Darcy Lussick. Toronto's main weakness is in their halves.

Toulouse by contrast has two excellent Super League standard halves in Johnathon Ford and Stanislas Robin (Ford, ironically, was born in Toronto, Australia). The entire Toulouse backline, when at full strength, is definitely of Super League quality, but the team lacks Super League quality prop forwards.
Toulouse for Championship in 2017, Super League in 2021!

Avignon for Championship in 2021, Super League in 2022!

I see what you did there Jean, to cover up your embarrassing assessment of the crap Toronto side, you conveniently changed the subject to another of your crap teams.

You are correct, because they would have to be, you know, under 19.
