Toronto asked to clarify their position

Toronto Wolfpack received a string of questions from Super League last week that the competition wants assurances on as they continue to consider the club’s re-admission to Super League.

Toronto have to re-submit their application by 23 October after prospective owner Carlo LiVolsi asked for more time.

As a result, Super League have provided a string of questions they want covering in their revised submission. Most of those questions are understood to be supplementary financial questions as well as contingency plans should the Covid-19 pandemic continue to impact the competition next season.

LiVolsi is set to speak to the Super League clubs during the week after lodging the Wolfpack’s submission, at which point a final decision is expected on the club’s future.

In the meantime, the club’s players remain in the dark about their unpaid salaries.

Toronto players and staff have gone unpaid for four months and know they are only likely to see their salaries paid if the Wolfpack are allowed back into the competition.

LiVolsi has said he will pay all outstanding wages on the basis that his takeover is completed, which is subject to Toronto being readmitted.
Canadian Quinn Ngawati was the latest to leave the club lat week after signing for Rugby United New York next year.
