If no sanctions are taken against Toronto what's to stop another club Hull , HKR or even Wigan doing the same if it is financially prudent to do so .

Paying SBW the huge wages whatever they are then claiming they can't find 2 million Canadion dollars to compete this year seems a bit hollow to me .

Best that we don't bother, let's stay in the m62 and not bother growing. Best not to try.

I remember the history of League, it started when Rugby Union was 100% of the of rugby option. Maybe that was the first mistake?


Let's not be silly, we are all want expansion, but we need to expand in our own country and France and other parts of Europe.

At least, they play games on a home and away basis and not in batches!

Prefer batches than playing in -30 in Canada, we play in batches don’t we as we play away for month ever year?

I agree. We always get a run of home games due to not being able to use our home ground for a spell. No different really other than that we aren't based in Canada.

Playing games in blocks is a compromise between them having to travel back and forth across the Atlantic every week which would be too harsh on them and playing all away and then all home as was tried one year which is harsh on other teams who all would face a rested team when having to travel themselves.

Playing games in blocks for a team with the travel, climate and distance issues such as Toronto have is by far the fairest system that could be used. I have never understood why so many people are so vehemently opposed to it. Other than them just not wanting TWP in the league of course.
