If you listened to my Everything You Always Wanted to Know About the Toronto Wolfpack Rugby League Football Club* (*But Were Afraid to Ask) episode of Toronto Mike'd, you know I know very little about rugby. I had also never seen a match live until this weekend. On Saturday, I attended my first rugby match.
I was given four VIP tickets to see the Toronto Wolfpack face the London Broncos in Super 8s Qualifiers action at Lamport Stadium on Saturday. It was a hot afternoon in the city with the air show taking place above, but good company and good grub made for a mighty fun match. These guys are big and tough and you don't realize the punishment their bodies endure until you see it close-up. It's insane.
We won 34-22, putting us in good shape to advance to the Super League next season. I'll definitely be back to watch a match or two then.
