12 of them will be covered this year, according to Forty-20 magazine. Doesn’t say which.

Good news, but they only have 11 home games.

What does it say about them? I'm still hoping that the next two weeks will see a series of announcements including TWP and Catalans rights!

All of the Toronto games must be televised (home and away)...this is a must and should not up for negotiation.

I believe the Wolfpack are in the process of arranging a broadcast deal with a major sports network in Canada, but need to tie up some loose ends from previous seasons as part of the terms.

Every regular season game must be televised, no exceptions.  These other SL teams must learn to be more forceful...they always eat the gruel they are given....NOT TWP!

Only by the grace of those SL teams can Toronto fulfil their fixtures, I imagine the conversation goes a little like "we cannot use our our own ground, and in this big sporting metropolis we live in there is no one who will help us out with letting TWP use theirs, so can we please use yours Mr SL Chairman"

Perhaps they should be a little more forceful!

Every team can only fulfil their fixtures because of the other teams. It’s sensible for them to play the early games over here when it’s too cold to play at Lamport.

There is nothing sensible about it.. It's a clear advantage. Fortunately its Super Leagues problem now.

It’s an advantage to the away team certainly, but that’s Toronto’s problem and they accept it. It also makes the loop fixtures fairer as each team only has to travel to Canada once.

It just shows what can be done with an iron will, a no die attitude and a bit of good old Canadian gumption.

There is alot for the the other SL teams to learn from the Wolfpack.

The more tv coverage the wolfpack and sl get the better

I hope the Wolfpack home games are given a slot. 

I dont think we have created the most value when it comes to overseas teams, even les Catalans, whilst their home games have a slot the away ones are sporadic and largely not broadcast

The TWP home games are currently scheduled for Saturdays 6.30pm UK time, which isn't a great slot as it could clash with Catalans. Hopefully they would be able to put Catalans at 4.30pm if they were to secure two TV deals for these where there is a clash. 

I think Catalans away games are broadcast pretty much as much as other teams.
