Toronto Wolfpack Seal Super 8s Spot

The Toronto Wolfpace have sealed a spot in the Super 8s after yet another win. This win was a 58-12 result over Workington Town. Now with 22 points the team is guaranteed a spot in the top eight. Of course that was always very likely to happen considering that the team has yet to lose this year in league play. Workington Town were one of the teams that are sitting on the bubble of the top eight. As a reminder, after the conclusion of the regular season the top eight teams in the competition then play each other once in what is called the Super 8s. The top team after that round gains automatic promotion. Teams #2-5 then have a playoff for the last spot. All in all it means that if the Wolfpack can win out in the Super 8s they will move up a division.

The match against Workington Town also represents the last trip to the UK during the regular season for the club. The Wolfpack now return home to the heat of the Toronto summer for four straight matches. The team has enjoyed a tremendous advantage at home so far. American Ryan Burroughs received another start for the club.
