After signing a three-year contract with Wigan Warriors, we take an in-depth look at Brad Singleton’s career so far with ten facts…

  • Born in Barrow-In-Furness on 29th October 1992, Singleton started playing rugby league at Barrow Island Rugby Club.
  • The Cumbrian joined Leeds Rhinos’ youth system in 2009 and made his professional rugby league debut in 2011 as he came off the bench in a 46-12 win over Salford.

  • Singleton spent time on loan at Dewsbury Rams in 2012 and Wakefield Trinity in 2013, before playing for Hunslet on dual registration.
  • In 2014, the prop forward broke into Leeds’ first team and in 2015 was part of the treble-winning team – becoming a Challenge Cup, League Leaders’ Shield and Super League Grand Final winner. Incidentally, he played in the 2015 Grand Final victory over Wigan at Old Trafford.

  • In 2015, Singleton made 29 appearances and scored eight Super League tries – the most appearances he has made and tries he has scored in a single season. 
  • Internationally, he represented England at Under-15s and Under-16s level and also captained England Academy against the French Schoolboys in a three-test series. Due to his mother’s Irish heritage, the front-rower was eligible to play for Ireland and he was named in the 2017 World Cup squad, where he played three games.

  • In 2017, Singleton won his second Super League Grand Final ring as he was part of the Leeds team that beat Castleford at Old Trafford. 
  • After a short loan spell with Featherstone Rovers in 2019, Singleton ended his ten-year tenure with Leeds as he signed for Canadian club Toronto Wolfpack for the 2020 season.

  • He made four appearances for Toronto at the start of the new season, including the 32-10 defeat to Wigan in February. However, a serious knee injury saw Singleton side-lined for four months. 
  • Now in September 2020, the 27-year-old – with over 200 career games under his belt – has signed for Wigan on a three-year deal starting from 2021.
