Noble leaves Toronto Wolfpack

21st February 2020, 08:39 by Tom Hill

Ex-Bradford Bulls coach Brian Noble has announced he has left his role as director of rugby at Toronto Wolfpack.

The 59-year-old leaves the Super League newcomers just a month into the new season, claiming it is the right time to move on.

Noble joined the club when they formed in 2016, and he has helped them climb through the leagues from League One to Super League.

He was responsible for the recruitment of players and coaches as well as day-to-day activities. Still, he believes the club are now in a better position under the stewardship of coach Brian McDermott.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with the Toronto Wolfpack and have so much pride in helping this organisation grow and to see us blaze a trail for rugby league in North America," Noble said.

"It has been an experience that I'll never forget and feel it's one of my greatest accomplishments.

"I have been considering my future since the beginning of the year, and I feel that now is the right time for me to move to a new challenge in the game.

"My mission has been achieved with the delivery of a strong football infrastructure for the club both in Toronto and the UK while being part of a brand that continues to attract some of the best talent globally."
