Toronto ‘to play Kangaroos on Oct 24’

They won’t fly a separate team of second tier players to Toronto. It’ll be packed with the best but because it’s not a full international a few of the extras will get a great opportunity.

If they are unknown in Toronto, can they really be superstars? I would have thought they’d just be just considered extremely good athletes.

This is true. Even in England now NZ Rugby is an easier sell than Australia Rugby, especially in London. The NRL players are just unknown for the most part outside of Australasia and thus the Kiwis (piggybacking the All Blacks of course) are just an easier concept to sell. Sad that we've got to this stage but we can work to build it back up!

If this comes off then it is great news.

A great opportunity for TWP to continue to raise their profile in their market.

And a great opportunity for the Kangaroos to build their brand... something they should have been doing for the last 40 years instead of simply letting the All Blacks become the premier 'rugby' brand and the accepted best players in the world while the Kangaroos remain the best kept secret in world sport.

When I last checked, the All Blacks play a different sport. What a nonsensical thing to say

All Blacks play Rugby, for most of the world that is what matters.

I answered your question already and you're now at 4 posts in this thread with no relevance to the thread topic. You are tedious to the extreme old chap and a bit of a bore too if I am honest. 
You often as not come across as a teenage cheerleader hoping to get the attention of the star quarterback who you'll let get to second base because that's what "popular" girls do, whilst hardly ever offering anything of value to any discussion other than to bemoan and belittle anyone who disagrees with you.
The poster who replied when I answered your question has also referred to you as a Donald Trump Wanabee, which I find a tad harsh of the Wotsit Headed Bigot i the White House.

Now. There you have it. I've bitten. I'm sure you'll get your jollies now, but I'd get nursey to up your meds as well!

Back on Thread AGAIN

I see that the CFL steer clear of Sunday as a match day, so that would mean just the buy in from MLS and the game can be inked in!

You ARE that troll with the various aliases...go back to the other forum where your kind belong/I don't care if you've been banned from there....you don't belong here..go away troll.

Something like 24 of your first 26 posts were anti-TWP, it’s deeply tedious. 

Try to see things from his perspective Eddie,if you can get your head that far up your own a##e.

They are unknown in Toronto and certainly not even close to being recognized in the same category as the Blacks....but this can change, and will change,  with an upcoming successful Toronto season.   I hope it all works out....lots of Aussies who live in CDN/USA will be coming to this one.

This is another great initiative by Toronto, I'm sure it will be a success, and gives them an opportunity to raise their profile in Canada even further after their first season is Superleague.

Are you that troll I ran into once?...yes or no.

Even if he is he won't tell you 

Ignoring him works well.  

He clearly wants your club to fail

I doubt tfc will be happy to have 2 rugby games on the pitch, in playoff time.  One would be doable but two would be very very damaging

What do tfc average crowd wise at BMO?

While Toronto will lose by a significant margin it’ll be a great way to show Toronto fans what the best are capable of.

It will also give fringe Australian players a chance to play.

They will take it easy like.they did vs America years ago

I say old fellow. You do seem to get a tad "hot under the collar" when you are found to be incorrect. I answered the question and yet you repeat the claim, which is again incorrect. This instance was your 5th attempt i this thread to attract attention to your incorrect claims rather than deal with the issue in hand. 

I'd add that your 6th post in this thread mentioned The All Blacks, yet you have tried to identify me (incorrectly) as a Union Troll. Wherever you are in the world K-man, there's a little bit more irony shining at the moment✌️Peace Out Man ✌️

Back on Topic Again. If this is at or near the contract stage, then Sunday the 25th would look like a best bet scenario, with the Australians leaving Canada on Monday and arriving late that night, with Tuesday to rest then a few days training before the first test at Bolton on the Saturday

I don't think you're a union troll, just a troll full stop. 

That said only 25 more posts to go and you're over the line once again!

It wasn't hard to understand.  In the early 90s.the kangaroos were probably bigger than the all.blacks then the super league war killed international rugby league 

Look at those roos side back then it was streets ahead of anything nz rugby could peoduce

This is RL marra, the clubs rule and have all the power. The small international teams have no money.

In RU the international teams have the power as they have the money.

Errr - yes as the clubs in RL ( both SL & NRL) hold the power- as I said-  I would say that as we all know it doesnt matter which country he plays for it would be at the digression of the club.

To be honest most of the NRL based players are on their way out or we have better in SL anyway - but SL clubs would have the final say anyway marra.

Is the term Marra part of the English language?

I noticed you use it in nearly every post.


Talent is secondary to whether players are confident.

West Cumbrian dialect. It means mate/friend.
