What a nightmare this as become
SBW and Ricky L are looking at signing 2-3 year deals over here so they have no intention of going back.

Be good to know which players are still under contract and which are being totally let go. If it’s a case of all players contracts are void can TWP legally do this and can players challenge this in court. As mentioned earlie both Leutele and SBW on massive contracts but thnk Leutele won’t return because poorly treated. I think as a care of duty to players perhaps the RFL or Superleague should now step and have a one on one with each player from TWP. If a considerable amount won’t return then there is no way it can work bringing them back in Superleague for now. They should then be looking at a comp for championship teams for a spot next year.

It's difficult to see how (or why) Toronto could come back next season.
Although every club is struggling with the new arrangements and not making any money, Toronto had agreed to play out their fixtures over here and changed their mind after the event and it is this change of mind that really screws things up.
Were they so badly organised that they hadn't realised that visas would expire and if not and they knew there would be a problem, why did they agree to complete the season - only to change their mind, within a week ??
The difficulty right now is that, while ever there is "Magic", SL needs an even number of clubs, as you couldn't deprive a club of 2 competition point or, gift them 2 if they didn't take part.
There has been some talk of New York taking over Toronto, on condition that their SL place stays on the table but, this would be utterly unacceptable.
How on earth can we have a situation where top flight places are "up for sale".
What would this say about our sport -?

The London owner must be feeling really peed off. Yes they finished bottom and deserved to go down, but they made a real go of it and brought other teams such as ourselves into a relegation scrap. They had a lot more going for them In SL than the gimmick of Toronto.

All in all Toronto has been a waste of time, money and a SL spot.

No reason for London to be aggrieved whatsoever, Fev on the other hand...................
