Rugby League Challenge Cup goes Trans-Atlantic

Toronto Wolfpack to debut in the world's oldest knock-out Rugby League competition

Rugby League's oldest knockout competition, the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup, welcomes it's first ever Canadian team this weekend when the Toronto Wolfpack take on Siddal on Saturday.

The competition, which dates back to 1897, has included teams from France and even from Russia in previous years. The expansion to include a club from the American continent is remarkable. 

Match will be streamed live on the BBC Sport website from 1pm BST.
