Depleted Toronto Wolfpack to be without James Cunningham for six months Globe_Sports

The 25-year-old hooker/scrum half went down in the Wolfpack ’s 32-10 loss at Wigan Warriors last Thursday

Wolfpack coach Brian McDermott said Cunningham is expected to be out six months.Toronto has also been walking a tightrope with its roster.Adding Cunningham to the injured list leaves McDermott with just 18 players to choose from for his matchday 17 (13 starters plus four on the interchange bench). He had hoped for a 28- to 30-man roster in Super League.

And forwards Jon Wilkin and Gadwin Springer are healthy again.Toronto has asked rugby league authorities for salary cap dispensation, arguing that it is unable to take advantage of breaks offered to rival clubs because it does not have an academy or training paths that others do.

Various measures to help Toronto have reportedly been voted down. But it appears the Wolfpack may be allowed to sign two domestic under-21 players without adding to their salary woes.The salary cap for Super League teams is 2.1 million pounds ($3.62 million). Each club is allowed two marquee players whose salary cap hit is limited to 150,000 pounds ($258,525) each no matter what they get paid.

When will the Catholic Church stop the coverups, deceit, and criminal behaviour?! Never. It’s become so ingrained at every level of its hierarchy. Protect ‘the church’ at all costs. Innocent lives still ruined by serial paedophiles masquerading as men of God.
