Toronto Wolfpack have announced their first ever signings, capturing Craig Hall and Liam Kay for 2017.
Both players have been widely linked with a switch to the Canadian club since its inception, with Kay previously playing under Wolfpack head coach Paul Rowley at Leigh Centurions.
The capture of Hall is considered a major coup, given that the 28-year-old has spent his entire professional career in Super League. Having made his debut at Hull FC in 2007, he joined fierce rivals Hull KR for the 2011 season. He eventually left Humberside in 2015, opting for a move to West Yorkshire with Wakefield. However, he will now be a part of Toronto’s first ever team as they attempt to earn promotion to the Championship.
As for Kay, the Leigh winger has become one of the most feared players in the Championship due to his prolific try-scoring record with the Centurions, scoring 74 tries in 82 appearances.
Kay, 24 previously played for Wakefield and Doncaster but has made a name for himself at Leigh since 2014.
