Toronto will begin their final push for Super League with a trip to form Championship team Halifax.

The Wolfpack finished 10 points clear at the top of the Betfred Championship but must earn promotion by either finishing in the top three of the Super 8s Qualifiers or winning the Million-Pound Game.

First up on Sunday, August 12, are Richard Marshall's part-time team who defied the odds once more to claim a top-four finish.

"We're going to be facing a team full of confidence," said Toronto half-back Ryan Brierley.

"They've had a great last couple of months, Richard Marshall has done an unbelievable job there and they deserve to be in the top four."

Toronto, who earned four home games after finishing in the top two, will play them in two blocks of two.

Hull KR and London Broncos will visit the Lamport Stadium in consecutive weekends, while the Wolfpack will take on Salford at the AJ Bell Stadium before hosting Toulouse and Widnes and rounding off their campaign against reigning champions Leeds at Headingley.
