They are going to need about 30 players and coaching staff...I suggest they look at raiding Leigh and hiring Rowley....I know, I know...it hasn't been done before but there has to be a first time for everything.

Probably waiting to see what happens with Toronto. If they are denied entry into Super League there really isn't much point in any North American teams continuing.

Why would Toronto be denied entry into Super League?

Parky will be pleased.

Yes, we can expect an essay published shortly explaining why Toronto will not be permitted into SL and how this will benefit all of the sport.

Because parochial SL teams don’t want anyone in who might shake up the tired M62 status quo.

Toronto hasn't won anything yet except the overall title...they have to win the playoff.  

No sense in getting ahead of ourselves, some other teams are going to have their say and after last year, well, one game at a time please.

Pretty good spin but the article if anyone cared to read it says “There will be no Betfred League 1 side based in Ottawa next season after the newly-relocated Hemel Stags were granted dispensation not to compete in 2020.”

Not exactly nailed on for 2021 just yet. I suspect that a lot of decisions will be made when the financial status of the game becomes clearer.

Precisely. The news is the RFL has confirmed League 1 will be an 11-team comp in 2020, not that Ottawa are confirmed in 2021

This hesitating and being so fearful is really shocking to many of us over here in North America...there is, of course, due diligence but this is ridiculous.  Its bizarre, the RFL is like one of those incompetent British Generals from WW1...LETS GO FOR IT AND GET OTTAWA IN THERE FOR NEXT YEAR!

NO GUTS NO GLORY!!!!

Disappointing! Ottawa should have been in next season. Many would lose interest having to wait for  another couple of years.

Shocking maybe, but par for the course for the RFL.  Their track record is one of protecting the traditional northern clubs and letting expansion clubs wither on the vine whenever push comes to shove, whatever the cost to the game may be.
