Million Pound Game: Toronto Wolfpack 2-4 London Broncos

Million Pound Game
Toronto Wolfpack (0) 2
Goal: O’Brien
London Broncos (2) 4
Goals: Sammut 2

London Broncos booked the final Super League spot for next season as they edged out Toronto Wolfpack 4-2 in the Million Pound Game.

Broncos will return to the top flight for the first time since relegation in 2014 after holding off Wolfpack in a cagey encounter in Canada.

Just three goals were exchanged by the two sides as stubborn defence and sloppy mistakes made for a nervy game.

Jarrod Sammut slotted one in either half to see London to a narrow win.

Broncos will replace relegated Widnes Vikings in Super League in 2019 while Toronto will remain in the Championship for a second year after being denied automatic promotion in the regular season on points difference by Hull KR.

Victory in the promotion play-off was sweet revenge for Broncos at Lamport Stadium after they lost on their two previous visits to Toronto earlier in the season.

More to follow.

Toronto Wolfpack: O’Brien, Caton-Brown, Rawsthorne, Wheeler, Russell, McCrone, Wallace, Lussick, Beswick, Sims, Dixon, Whiting, Emmitt.

Replacements: Buchanan, Ackers, Sidlow, Higson.

Sin bin: Ackers (32)

London Broncos: Walker, Williams, Kear, Hellewell, Dixon, Pitts, Sammut, Evans, Pelissier, Ioane, Gee, Lovell, Hindmarsh.

Replacements: Spencer, Battye, Butler, Davies.

Referee: Chris Kendall (RFL)
