How Toronto’s squad for 2019 is shaping up

Toronto have made a number of high-profile signings for 2019, so we have taken a look at their squad on paper.

The Wolfpack will be led by Brian McDermott in 2019. McDermott won four Super League Grand Finals, two Challenge Cups and a World Club Challenge in his time at Leeds Rhinos.

He will take over the head coaching reins from Paul Rowley.

McDermott, who has also been head coach of USA and Harlequins, is just one of many new faces at Lamport Stadium though.

Jon Wilkin, Tom Olbison, Gadwin Springer, Joe Mellor, Bodene Thompson and Ricky Leutele have all joined the club ahead of 2019.
