Toronto Wolfpack suffer first defeat

2 months ago By John Finch

York City Knights make history in front of a big crowd

York City Knights created history by condemning Toronto Wolfpack to their first ever league defeat with a 26-16 victory.

Jake Butler-Fleming put York in front on his Knights debut before Liam Harris pounced on a loose ball to double the lead.

Ryan Brierley was sinbinned and Harris scooted over for his second just before half time to give the hosts an 18-0 lead.

Brierley returned from the sinbin to bring Toronto onto the board and Bob Beswick brought the Wolfpack to within a score just five minutes after the restart, with Connor Robinson responding with a penalty goal.

Craig Hall brought the Canadians to within four points but Jack Bussey became the second player from Paul Rowley’s side to be yellow-carded.

And their indiscipline proved to be costly as Robinson crossed and converted his own try to seal a historic victory for York.
