I know it’s a little unfair but they almost need an exemption from relegation for the good of the game. There needs to be the likes of Toronto and a French team in that comp- even London to an extent otherwise it’s just a northern English comp. It was a shame when the Crusaders and the original PSG folded too

Castleford v Wakefield was last nights TV game and I haven’t seen the highlights yet, but reading the match report suggests Toronto were much improved. Their season will hinge on remaining results against teams in the lower half.

Buying a former superstar for his profile whilst losing every week shows the mistake they’ve made though
