The Broncos were expected to present the stiffest test yet for the Wolfpack, rugby league's first transatlantic team. While no longer a member of the elite Super League, the London team stands fourth in the second-tier Championship with a 4-2-0 record.

After a London try started the second half, the Wolfpack responded with a pair of tries to go up 30-12.

Toronto returns to action March 26 against the Keighley Cougars in a League 1 match.
