Toronto Wolfpack will today officially become Rugby League’s first ever Transatlantic team as they play against Siddal in the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup.
Whilst the goal is taking on the likes of Leeds and Wigan in Super League, the Wolfpack start their journey at a small venue in Halifax against the National Conference Champions.
With a squad more than capable of reaching the latter rounds of the competition, Wolfpack Coach Paul Rowley made the Quarter Finals with then Championship side Leigh in 2015. Wolfpack CEO Eric Perez has already stated that his side could reach the final ‘Why can’t it happen, why not?’ he told reporters.
Today’s clash with Siddal can be streamed live via the BBC website at 1pm this afternoon.
There are plenty of other games today in the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup, including Newcastle Thunder v Workington, with more games tomorrow including the Southern Derby between Hemel Stags and London Skolars.
