Toronto Wolfpack chairman confident of Super League credentials

Toronto are confident they will meet the criteria to be a Super League club – should they gain promotion.

The Wolfpack are just two games away from achieving promotion from the Championship to the top-flight.

However, Super League chief executive Robert Elstone revealed to the media on Monday that the Canadian club would need to provide documents to prove they are worthy of being a Super League club to get the green light.

Elstone said: “If Toronto win the right to be promoted, then they have to meet minimum standards.

“We are talking to the RFL about what they look like. We are seeking a number of assurances from the RFL and, if we get those and Toronto win that game, they are in.”

Toronto chairman Bob Hunter has responded to Elstone’s comments in a statement given to PA.

Hunter said: “Our team on the pitch has worked extremely hard to get to where we are today and we look forward to the opportunity to prove ourselves in the next three weeks.

“As for Robert’s comments, I am confident that we can assure him and the Super League owners that we have what it takes financially to join the Super League family.

“We had a good meeting with the RFL last week and we are checking off all the necessary boxes of requirements for potential promotion.”
