Toronto confirm plans to train in Brighouse

Toronto Wolfpack have reached an agreement to use the training facilities of amateur side Brighouse Rangers.

The Wolfpack will be using the facilities during their stints in the UK, with an agreement currently in place until the end of 2017.

Wolfpack CEO Eric Perez noted: “Brighouse seemed like a natural fit for us, with their rich history in the game, world class training facility, and a club culture that resonated with us in regards to working with their local community and youth academies. We are keen to get started and are sure this agreement will only benefit both clubs in the short and long term.”

Brighouse Rangers Secretary Clarke Bailey added; “Brighouse Rangers are one of the founding members of the Rugby Football League. We have a long history, and whilst respecting the tradition of our great sport, we always welcome change and are open to new ideas.

“We were approached by the Toronto Wolfpack with a request to use our sports complex at Russell Way and as a result, we spent time speaking with Wolfpack CEO Eric Perez, director of rugby Brian Noble and their backroom team.

Both myself and the Rangers Chairman, Paul Sweeney, were impressed with the Wolfpack’s enthusiasm and professionalism.

“All our staff, our players, and our supporters are looking forward to a successful partnership between our two clubs over the coming months and, hopefully, years.”
