Toronto Wolfpack director of rugby Brian Noble is convinced his side will overcome London Broncos and secure a Super League spot. Wolfpack and London will contest the Million Pound Game on Sunday and the winner will earn a place in the top flight, while the loser will remain in the Championship.
Toronto were unlucky not to secure automatic promotion as they finished level on points with the top three after The Qualifiers but missed out due to an inferior points difference.
Noble has backed his side to secure the win on Sunday and stressed the Super League will remain Toronto’s goal even if they miss out this time around.
“Obviously we would have liked automatic promotion but at the end of the day we didn’t get enough points so the second-best thing for us is to make sure we perform on Sunday,” said Noble, as reported by Sky Sports.
“But we’re playing a very determined London team. They thrashed us early on in the season down in London and there is very little between the two teams.
“If you allow them to play, they’re really dangerous, you’ve seen that right throughout the season and the way they started the middle eights by beating Widnes.
“That wasn’t a surprise to me, they’ve got some cracking players and [coach] Danny Ward has done an unbelievable job.
“For sure, it would be disappointing if we didn’t win but would it derail us from our ambition to be in Super League? No, not at all.”
