(Leeds) The RFL have confirmed the 2017 fixture schedule and Toronto Wolfpack will be heading to London in Round 1, for their first official league match. The first home match takes place in Round 6 when Oxford make history as the first team to take on the Wolfpack in Toronto, at the Den. Head of Rugby Brian Noble was quick to share his thoughts on the fixtures; “It’s a difficult schedule no doubt. We feel the first away stint will set the stage for the season as we have some tough trips like freshly relegated Whitehaven, and traditional clubs like Keighley and Doncaster. We will be looking for the right results, so we are in a strong position when we take on Oxford in our debut home match.”
Toronto will start the Super 8’s stage away from home and finish the final four matches at the Den. With the release of the fixtures, Toronto fans are one step closer to seeing their much anticipated Wolfpack take the field to try and hunt for silverware in year 1. Only time will tell if they can make it happen.
