Good news for the game:

World wide broadcast

If you're not in one of the region's getting TV coverage you can stream it on facebook

Of note: Sportsnet will be broadcasting it! Which if it get good numbers could see that TV contract come in (if you are in Canada and have snw or snnow  please give it a watch instead of the CBC!)

Also. TV broadcast coverage in what looks like Mongolia....why not! #mongoliaSL2025

It is rubbish that UK RL is not being shown in far more places than that. 

When we are trying to spread the sport in Africa etc. surely the sport should be given away to channels.

I will let you into a little secret, your team is nowhere near the standard required by SL, McDermott knows this, you have to many ageing players who will get mullered especially those in the forwards, the speed and physicality of SL will result in injuries, 

Good job they are currently playing in the championship then.

Im fairly certain there will be changes to the squad if they do gain promoted although the last championship team promoted didn't do so bad with what was basically the same team.

Like Celtic Crusaders did.

Celtic Crusaders did a lot of great work and the legacy is still seen today with the Ben Flowers of this world. The trouble was when Samuels got bored and the money stopped.

World wide on Facebook though (all the grey is Facebook live!)

Do agree that it should be given away in emerging markets, more eyeballs more players!

Fair enough, but that's what can potentially happen when a Club relies on one man.

Just catching up on this thread, you have just confirmed what I said on another thread later in the week, you really are deluded.

???? = TWP,

?? not one of these in sight at the club, no players, no coaches not even the owner, although there may be one or two of the bartenders in the tented village though.?

Fortunatley, most people these days don't define community and identity through an ethnic purity test, so I think they'll be fine.

Or in completely the wrong place with neither the population or corporate side to sustain a Super League club.

Hello Dav, you are quite right with London, albeit they did get relegated in the end, and no disrespect to them at all they can only perform against what is in front if them, but one has to wonder if Saints had needed to win those two defeats at the hands of London they probably could have ensured they would have done, but glad they didn't it made the end of the season more exciting to read, comment on and watch, Thanks Saints.

Being fairly certain as you state that they will make changes to the squad, sounds to me that you know they need to make changes to the squad, you must see the same as I do, individually and collectively they are nowhere near capable of competing in SL with the present roster, how much have they got to spend? McDermott knows and it does  seem that he is to pleased with the prospect.

Harry we have discussed this before. Anyone with the slightest insight into RL can see that TWP need a big change in the squad should they go up. Best we can hope for should we go up is consolidation without a relegation fight. Then push on from there. The rest of the championship are a long way behind us in being able to cope. Luckily there are people in the club who realise our position and what is required. Not all TWP fans are oblivious to what lies in wait. The cull has already started and players have been released back to Leigh . How much wiggle room McDermott has remains to be seen but the gap between the two leagues is a huge ask for any team.

But they don't presently need a squad that can compete at Superleague level,they only need a team to get out of the Championship,same as they only needed a team good enough to get out of League 1 which they accomplished and afterwards changed the playing personnel to reflect the higher level they were to play in.

This is what Toronto Wolfpack bring to the table. With the exception of The Wolfpack, Championship games aren’t even broadcast in the UK, never mind Africa.

Talk is cheap Harry.

Now another poster on here wanted a bet between you and me on this game and the loser has to change their emoje for one year to the other teams side.

I'm calling you out on this Harry Stottle...last chance for you to  put some meat on your bony argument by backing up your posts.

I'm willing to take the bet right now and I'm with Toronto and CANADA!  Are you willing to stand behind your country or not; or are you fearful of a few colonials taking over the game and teaching you English a few lessons.  Are you willing to back the talk with action?

Yes or no Harry...are you taking the bet....YES OR NO?

When did this game change into an international?

You on drugs? You are so blind to not see that Toronto offer so much and deserve to be in SL over Fev and others. I want my Club to do well,but the game for me is more important. SL should be the flagship to promote the sport. Sadly most Championship Clubs are not ready to bring anything to help enhance SL.

If so then what on earth are we running a Championship for? And when if ever will a team be ready to go up to SL?

Already answered that K'man, unlike your goodself as I said I have been to long in my teams colours to forsake them now, I would sooner be strung up by my eyelids with meathooks than to don the garb of another team, even one as up and coming as the TWP?, I know you are only yet playing at being a supporter - after 3 long years - you ain't even wer behind the earholes yet, easy for you to change your colours.
