Featherstone interested in filling Toronto void

Featherstone Rovers have confirmed they have contacted the RFL and Super League about taking the place of Toronto Wolfpack.

It was announced earlier today that Toronto had withdrawn from the Super League. However, they hope to be able to put out a squad in 2021.

Featherstone were beaten by the Wolfpack in the 2019 Championship Grand Final back in October, and have since made an unbeaten start.

Rovers CEO Davide Longo said: “We were surprised that Toronto Wolfpack have had to make such a tough decision, every club within the sport has had to make challenging decisions this year and we share their disappointment in this difficult period.

“However, it leaves the rest of the Super League clubs with an uneven competition, disrupting the integrity of the division in 2020.

“Rovers have a squad littered with experienced players and ambitions to strengthen the squad if an opportunity presents itself. Featherstone were unbeaten going into lockdown and we feel a shot this season is worthy of our club’s efforts over recent years.”
