Super League say “timing unhelpful” over Toronto visa woe

Super League say they are concerned by the news it received regarding Toronto Wolfpack’s visa issues.

A report in The Mirror revealed that seven overseas players would not be permitted to remain in the UK for the rest of the campaign, as per the conditions of their visas.

This has been due to the COVID-19 pandemic forcing the Wolfpack to remain in the UK throughout, whereas they should have been travelling to Canada to play home games.

The RFL is working with authorities to resolve the visa issues that could prevent the Wolfpack completing the 2020 Super League season.

A Super League spokesman said: “Betfred Super League is obviously concerned by the news it received from Toronto Wolfpack yesterday. The timing is also unhelpful. 

“We are looking into the details and have offered the club, and The RFL, our full support to resolve these issues ahead of the season restarting on August 2.”

Toronto are due to face Hull KR on Sunday August 2 to mark the re-start of the Super League season.
