Toronto quartet commit to club

2nd December 2019, 18:38 by Tom McGarry

Toronto Wolfpack captain Josh McCrone is one of four players to have agreed fresh terms with the newly-promoted Super League club.

Half-back McCrone has put pen to paper on a one-year deal that will see him remain with the Canadian club for their debut Super League season.

The 32-year-old has no previous experience of playing top-flight rugby in the northern hemisphere but did feature over 150 times in the NRL for the Canberra Raiders and St George Illawarra earlier in his career.

Hooker Andy Ackers and centres Gary Wheeler and Chase Stanley have all signed two-year extensions as the Wolfpack show faith in several of the players that helped them earn promotion last season.

Wheeler is the only one of the quartet that boasts previous Super League experience. He enjoyed spells with St Helens and Warrington Wolves earlier in his career.

The quartet are not the only players that have committed their futures to Toronto since the club's promotion was confirmed, with winger Liam Kay and stand-off Blake Wallace having signed new two-year contracts last week.
