Toronto Wolf­pack’s Su­per League fu­ture is in in­creas­ing doubt af­ter a warn­ing that they could face sanc­tions for with­draw­ing from the rest of the 2020 sea­son less than two weeks be­fore the com­pe­ti­tion’s sched­uled restart. Robert El­stone, the Su­per League chief ex­ec­u­tive, has re­fused to com­mit to Wolf­pack, who had lost all six of their matches prior to the shut­down, re­tain­ing their place for 2021 de­spite a de­ci­sion to sus­pend rel­e­ga­tion and pro­mo­tion for this cam­paign. Wolf­pack chair­man Bob Hunter ad­mit­ted the club had missed mul­ti­ple pay­roll dates over the past year. Hunter said: “The ideal sit­u­a­tion is we stay in Su­per League and we com­pete in 2021. The worst case is that they tell us they don’t want us to play any more.”

Darts

Gary An­der­son laid down his marker at the PDC World Match­play by beat­ing James Wade. The 2018 cham­pion was too good for Wade in Mil­ton Keynes and won 11-8 to set up a pos­si­ble quar­ter­fi­nal with Michael Van Ger­wen. Michael Smith is also in the last eight af­ter he came from be­hind to beat Men­sur Suljovic 14-12, but sixth seed Nathan Aspinall crashed out.
