In an exclusive interview with RL NEWS, Toronto commercial vice president Jon Pallett has addressed media speculation surrounding finances at the Wolfpack.

Pallett was asked to explain the club’s spending on players, amid stories in the media of unpaid bills and winding-up orders.

He told RL NEWS Magazine’s Nicholas Mew: “I think the media stories are speculation and opinion pieces, rather than anything quoting specific sources.
