Wolfpack Win, One Step Closer To Promotion

The Toronto Wolfpack are one step closer to promotion after a 50-0 win over the Newcastle Thunder. The blowout win is a much needed result for the Wolfpack who have been winning but also suffered a draw and a loss in the Super 8s. Toronto have maintained their two point lead in the standings over the Barrow Raiders. Last weekend was the first time that the Wolfpack played at home during the Super 8s. Next up for the team is Whitehaven who have been tough before their big match against Barrow. If Toronto can win those last two matches they will secure promotion with one match left.

For those that don't know, the Super 8s are an end of season promotion competition for teams in League 1. The top team at the end of the Super 8s automatically gains promotion to the Championship. The teams that finished 2-5 go to an additional playoff. The results from the regular season count toward promotion. That works in favor of Toronto giving them their lead despite a couple less than ideal results.
