Toronto’s season record expunged from Super League

29th February 2020, Halliwell Jones Stadium, Warrington, England; Betfred Super League, Toronto Wolfpack v Saint Helens : Players from both teams have an on field disagreement

Toronto have had their Super League season record expunged following their withdrawal from the remainder of the campaign.

The Wolfpack pulled out citing overwhelming financial issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, not having any home games in Canada and their lack of central funding.

They had lost all six of their games prior to lockdown – against Castleford, Wigan, Leeds, St Helens, Salford and Warrington.

A statement said: “Following Toronto Wolfpack’s withdrawal from Betfred Super League 2020 earlier this week, the Super League Board agreed this afternoon that the club’s record for this season should be removed.

“Points earned in matches involving Toronto Wolfpack will be deducted, and for and against tallies will be adjusted accordingly.

“Individual players’ statistics will remain unaffected – but Man of Steel points earned in fixtures involving the club will be erased.

“Super League and The RFL Board will now give further consideration to Toronto Wolfpack’s future ahead of the 2021 season.”

Here is how the revised table looks ahead of the restart on August 2.

  1. Failure to finish a season, for any reason, is surely automatic religation at the very least, and should have to re apply and Prove they are viable. They are no different from any other club in this request. This stupid inter continental farce must end, Our sport is a laughing stock.
