A Canadian company owed more than £170,000 by Toronto Wolfpack has taken aim at the defunct club Television production business iLink Media Group has successfully sued the Wolfpack in Canada for unpaid work for covering the club’s matches in 2018.iLink supplied all of the mobile facilities and TV production for all of Toronto’s matches during the that season. But the company claims it was never paid for its work and took the club to court in 2019.

It won its claim in the Albert Court of Queen’s Bench and now has had that judgment registered in the Ontario courts against the Wolfpack.But John Phillips, the co-owner of iLink, admits that because of Toronto’s delaying tactics and the impact of Covid-19 on the speed of court matters, he and his business will likely receive nothing.

"it’s become very obvious that the Wolfpack have done everything they can to not pay their suppliers, including us, a number of individual freelancers, team staff, players and even their former chief operating officer. Even though the business of the Wolfpack continues to be active, I suspect there’s not much there for us to collect any more.”

iLink’s battle to get paid by Toronto has gone on for nearly three years. During that time Phillips says his company has had minimal contact with Wolfpack owner David Argyle and zero contact with Carlo LiVolsi, the Canadian who made a bid to take over the ailing club in 2020. “During the process we reached out to David Argyle directly once and he responded almost immediately, saying he would call us to chat the next day about finding a way to reach a settlement and then we ever heard from him again,” he said.

“Other than that, despite David Argyle acknowledging our lawsuit publicly in the media in 2019 nobody from the Wolfpack has ever tried to try to settle this.....

Ver much a case of the Emperor's New Clothes, and because they were a new shiny thing many were taken in. Shame really as done right it could be a viable way to expand the game.

If only the betting shops were open last night.

I knew you would be salivating....and be back!

Are you suggesting Bradford,under different owners,were a bit of fun,to be tossed away?

Widnes,under O'Connor,after he got his free advertising on the lorries?

Just a shame rich folk get rich by not paying out - and it is not just England where it is allowed to happen.

If UK clubs are allowed/not policed enough to pay HMRC - then it now seems the governing bodies can't ensure anyone, and everyone else can be paid.

In your xenophobic delirium,please try and have a scintilla of sympathy for rugby league enthusiasts,once again,seriously let down....not forgetting coaches,players and staff from the M62.
No reserves,but resilience,persistence and determination are omnipotent.

This can't be true - DA's money problems only related to Covid, there were billions sloshing around before that.
