Replacing London with Toronto bad for Rugby League, says Koukash

Former Salford chairman Marwan Koukash believes the relegation of London would be bad for Super League.

The Broncos’ survival hopes received a boost with a dramatic win away at Hull KR last night and Koukash is hopeful the Broncos can beat Wakefield to stay up next week.

And he doesn’t believe that Toronto would be a worthy replacement if they did go down.

He said: “After tonight’s performance, it would be very bad for Rugby League if London were to be relegated and replaced in Super League by Toronto.”

Koukash also predicted that Leigh will be promoted instead of the Wolfpack.

“Last year, Rugby League experts took it for granted that Toronto will be promoted and they are doing it again this year!

“I really think Leigh will be the team to be promoted.”
