Toronto draw crowd of 9,325, Warrington draw crowd of 5,625

Recommended Posts

Toronto going up with an average gate of 8,000 (conservative estimate) and London going down would boost the whole league’s average attendance by about 500, and maybe more as I expect away crowds will be bigger to see TWP than they are London. Yet a lot of posters here still think Tolouse are a better bet to raise the profile of SL and some would be happy to see the back of the likes of HKR and Cas to get them in.

But they aren't real home-grown RL fans - when will people understand?

1 Warrington fan is equivalent to 10 Canada casuals.

Sport, amongst other things, is a dream-world offering escape from harsh reality and the disturbing prospect of change.

In all serious Johnny, Elstone and his Super League buddies will make the game look the laughing stock of British sport if they turn down Toronto  for a Super League place if Toronto win the Championship Grand Final

It’s gonna be crowded when a SL club brings 1000s of fans for their first trip to Toronto.

Especially so if Toronto sports fans see the English fans singing in a big group and think it’d be a good day out at the rugby in Toronto.

I cannot wait for Leeds to go there.

What a great thread! Really there is no excuse for that Warrington crowd. Well done Toronto, you belong at the table. Just one more win.

Wonder how Toronto will go with a Thursday evening kick off.

Probably the same as Catalans when they come over here?

When will the S.L. realise that fans are sick to the back teeth of playing the same team over and over again,and also scrap the ridiculous Thursday night game.Scrap the loop fixtures,if they want more games make S.L. 14 teams.

Your so right Blind, how can they possibly be RL fans when there sat in the sunshine enjoying themselves with smile's on their faces, scandalous! The sooner people realise it's a drinks festival with a few blokes messing about on a stripey bit of plastic the better. And there's lots of kids who have been dragged their against their will, and, and groups of good looking, hot women too!!!!

(Dons tin hat and wonders if Parkys bunker will be deep enough to withstand the fallout from that last comment)😁

That will be a Thursday afternoon game here. Just one of the details that have to be worked out.

couldn't agree more, as much as I  would prefer Toulouse to gain SLE entry if Toronto are denied after winning the GF, I will be finished with the  sport for good,

If they're rejected for a good reason (these unpaid bills keep cropping up) and it's explained ill accept it.  But otherwise they must be allowed up if they win.  Would be great for the game.

There was a short video posted I think by Sky Sports Canada yesterday on Twitter showing TWP fans enjoying the game...I thought people were being ironic, like you, and saying 'this is embarrassing' but no they actually meant it because they were not the usual RL crowd doing the usual RL thing.  God do we need some new blood/energy in the game!

Plenty of Super League clubs haven't paid their bills on time in the past.

It's easy to attract a large number through the gates if you are constantly seen as the invincible s . Would such high number turn up if they were in the SL and lost 1/2 of their home games or more ?

Conversely, victory after victory (sometimes very easy wins to boot) can become dull and lose interest. It isn't like the Canadians have never come across competitive sport before.

I don't think it's easy at all.

I'm not sure you can compare a longstanding member club to a new member who has to fund transatlantic travel and an entirely foreign playing squad.  Like I say, hopefully the RFL have asked for an explanation and received a good one.

I'd agree in Part but remember it is also a very new and novelty sport at the moment too .
