The first professional transatlantic sports team play their first league game vs London Skolars this weekend. It's a small world!

Toronto has played three games so far all in Britain
Their first game was a friendly against Hull ity FC and they lost 26-20
The second game was Round 3 of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup and " the Pack" beat Siddal ARLFC 14-6
The third game today was a 76-0 yes 76-0win over London Skolars in Round 1 whih Iassume is the Regularseason
How significant are these matches ? It sees that Skolars were badly outmatched

I would expect many of the league fixtures to feature big scores as League 1 has many development area teams that lack the financial clout of Toronto. This weekend at Whitehaven will be one of their tougher games….traditional club and traditional weather!
Their 4th round cup tie is vs London Broncos and they are one tier above Toronto (Championship)…again a fair indicator of where they are. They're aiming for promotion this season to play at that level in 2018.

They beat Whitehaven (in a mudbath) 24-10. A good effort.
Gert Frobe is correct about "friendlies" though….they rarely are until after the final whistle. Trial games is better…… and it's not just rugby….it's Rugby League.
