Coventry Bears’ head coach Tom Tsang says his players are eagerly anticipating this week’s trip to face Toronto in Canada.
The Wolfpack have swept all before them in League 1 this season, but Tsang wants the team to enjoy the experience.
“We are all very excited about the trip to Canada,” said Tsang.
“We have been watching the Wolfpack’s entry into the league and impressive progression through the first half of the season with interest and can only applaud how they are selling the sport overseas and bringing in new audiences to the greatest game.
“We are doing something similar in the Midlands, albeit on more modest budgets, but we embrace any venture that is looking to spread the rugby league gospel.
“Clearly it will be very difficult for us – one look at the league table and playing form will show that there is a gap between us and Toronto.
“Added to that the travel and acclimatisation required of my semi-professional players and the cards are very obviously stacked against us.
“However, we will go there and give it our best and make sure to make the most of the experience and really enjoy ourselves.
“We have three players unavailable for the trip, plus some late fitness checks on three others, but other than that, the lads are healthy and raring to go.”
