Toronto have signed young forwards Jack Wells and Ben Kilner on one-month loan deals from Wigan.

Back-rower Wells, 22, has made 13 first-team appearances for the Warriors since making his debut in 2016.

Prop Kilner, 20, has yet to make his first-team debut for Wigan but spent time on loan at Leigh in the Championship last season.

Wigan executive director Kris Radlinski said: “Both Ben and Jack have impressed us during the off-season with their efforts and application.

“This opportunity has presented itself for them both to experience Super League rugby and get some much needed game time, which we believe will beneficial for all parties concerned.

“They’re two promising forwards, who will benefit from time on the pitch and under Brian McDermott they have a great coach to work under.”
