Toronto Wolfpack began the climb into Super League in 2017, and now find themselves sat bottom of the pile, losing all their opening games. However, it is surely an achievement to be admired either way, to take a team from the bottom to the top in any sport takes wise investment, patience, setbacks, victories and defeats – Toronto have been through it all.

Hemel Stags, a team formerly based in London, have today announced via the ‘Our League’ app that they are hoping to replicate the Toronto Wolfpack, and are relocating to Ottawa, Canada, to form the ‘Ottawa Aces.’

It took Toronto four seasons, winning promotion in three of them after narrowly missing out to London Broncos in 2018 which would’ve seen them win three back-to-back promotions.

The team will begin their adventure in 2021, and they will begin in League 1, the same as Toronto did.

It has been proven it can be done, Ottawa Aces, with the right guidance could do it too.
