All this success is great, but what happens now on the domestic front? It would be a big shame if the answer was "Nothing. Season starts again in 6 months".

I'm not sure what you mean by that. I know that the CRL guys work tirelessly all year round. They set up the next year's international fixtures, produce a weekly TV show, visit SL clubs and set up partnerships with them, chase sponsorship...I could go on. As for playing the game, conditions dictate that for 6 months of the year there's nowhere to play RL outside. At least not in Ontario.

It was reported as being a two game tour here, the Wolverines and a club side. Did the RAF play another game other than the one against the Wolverines then spooky?

They played a Toronto select side in a warm up game then played Canada 'A', not the full strength Canada side.

They play the Canada development X111 tonite at the same venue, If its still being played.

One of the Wolverines just tweeted that they were practising with the Lions tonight so make of that what you will. Same venue.

Have they decided who the Lions will play in game 2 yet?

I'm not sure there's going to be a game two. If there is it's not being publicised and will likely be held out of the City, similar to the games vs the RAF earlier this year.

Yes, it was Thanksgiving weekend and I fully expected that (and the rain) to have an adverse effect on the crowd so it was amazing to see so many people turn up. Some of the England camp were worried about the result and hoped they hadn't done more harm than good but the general feeling I got from the players was that they are now just more determined to work harder and get better. It was a bit of a disjointed team with them bringing in 4 new players from BC plus a few more players who hadn't played in the last few games. That certainly didn't help against such a fierce opponant.
