Toronto confirm signing of Mason Caton-Brown

Toronto have signed Wakefield winger Mason Caton-Brown on a deal until the end of the season.

The 25-year-old has scored a total of 52 tries in 74 Super League games, having previously played for London Broncos, Salford Red Devils and Wakefield.

But Caton-Brown found chances hard to come by at Trinity this season, playing just four Super League games.

On his move to Toronto, Caton-Brown said: “I’m really looking forward to meeting all the players and staff and I can’t wait to get stuck in to training and playing at Lamport Stadium, I’ve heard nothing but good things about the fans and the atmosphere over there.

“The 8s are going to be an awesome challenge. From the results the team have achieved throughout this year there’ll be a lot of confidence going into these huge games and to be involved in gaining promotion would be a special achievement.”

Toronto coach Paul Rowley is glad to have secured the services of Caton-Brown.

He said: “With the injuries received to Greg Worthington and Adam Higson, it has left us short on outside backs at a crucial point in the season.

“We have been keen on Mason for long parts of the season and to be able to bring in someone of his experience is a fantastic coup in such a short space of time. We’ve reacted quickly but we’re delighted with the acquisition.”
