Wolfpack and Rovers battle for Super League place

Posted by

Toronto Wolfpack and Featherstone Rovers do battle one last time to decide who will replace London Broncos in the Super League.

The Wolfpack come into this game off the back of a big win over Toulouse at the Lamport Stadium.

The back to back league leaders have only lost one game this season and are unbeaten at home in 2019.

Perhaps crucially, the last and only time they have lost there in their short history was against Featherstone Rovers in 2018.

Rovers come into the game off the back of some increasingly impressive away performances to dispose of Leigh Centurions, York City Knights and Toulouse.

Given their current form, they will certainly fancy their chances on the other side of the Atlantic.

Both will go into the game with the knowledge they are guaranteed a place at the top table of English Rugby League.

The Super League confirmed both sides would be promoted, after recent concerns about whether or not the Wolfpack had sufficient funds, and Rovers confirmed they would be getting new floodlights at the LD Nutrition  Stadium to ensure they fit the criteria.

The Wolfpack will hoping to avenge what happened last year, as they went down to a resolute London Broncos side in Canada, as they missed out on a place in the Super League.

The match kicks off at 7.30pm UK time.
