Toronto Wolfpack – 2018 Fixtures



The Rugby Football League (RFL) has today confirmed regular season fixtures for the 2018 Kingstone Press Championship. The Toronto Wolfpack take their place in the second tier of English Rugby League for the first time following an inaugural season which included promotion and the Kingstone Press League 1 title.

 

The Wolfpack return to pre-season training next week at their new Manchester training base. Linking up for pre-season will be high profile new signings Tom Armstrong, David Taylor, Olsi Krasniqi, Ashton Sims, Josh McCrone, Andy Ackers and Joe Westerman. A number of the Pack are involved in the Rugby League World Cup (currently taking place in Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea) and will join up with the squad in December.

 

Toronto Wolfpack will play 23 regular season games, which includes a home and away fixture against all 11 Championship rivals. The Wolfpack also take on Leigh Centurions at the 2018 Summer Bash, this fixture forms part of a full round of extra fixtures taking place across the weekend of 26th and 27th May in Blackpool.
