Unsurprisingly Catalans (expansionist team) and the RFL (that under Rimmer's mentor created the monster) voted for Toronto's readmission. Leeds' and Saints' backing we may learn the reasons for later. Warrington walked the wire. Abstention is the most reprehensible of votes.

Glad they've been sent Pack-ing.

They delivered SL but ran out of money and couldn't sustain the dream.
The big questions here are just who invited them in without a sensible future plan.

Talked the talk but couldn't walk the walk.

Problem was that they were 'up and running' before they could walk! No existing fanbase or tradition.

If there is ever another overseas upstart, they should be required to lodge a bond of several years' worth of running costs with the RFL to ensure that players will be paid at the very least.

Bit like promising a new ground as part of a franchise application and still waiting 11 years later then :D

Not half, the selective memory of some people ehh. Plus the boom n bust of so called “traditional clubs”
Regardless of for or against Toronto/expansion the game once again showed itself for what it is, insular tin pot Small time.
