Synopsis: In my latest for The Athletic Toronto, I sat down with Toronto Wolfpack owner David Argyle to talk about what comes next in year three of the franchise’s existence.
The Toronto Wolfpack held their destiny in their hands. Looking up from a 2-2 standing in the Rugby League Qualifiers, they won three in a row, including an upset of powerhouse Leeds. They were on the edge of a Super League promotion. A winner-gets-promoted affair — The Million Pound Game — against the London Broncos on home turf was exactly where they wanted to be.
“I think for most of the fans, including myself, it was like watching a train wreck,” team c0-owner David Argyle told The Athletic in an exclusive interview.
That crash came slowly, at a pace that would normally seem to favor the Wolfpack. A 2-0 deficit at halftime left room for optimism, but shortly after the Wolfpack tied the game, London pulled back ahead 4-2. That would wind up the final, by far the lowest-scoring affair in team history and hardly the style of game — or the outcome — the Wolfpack were expecting.
