This is a big problem for Toronto. It will be difficult for them to attract and keep players with their 4weeks in Canada 4weeks in the UK rotation. Once the novelty wears off for the players they will start to miss their families. Already rumours of Dave Taylor trying to get out of his contract. Ashton Simms is a big family man, I can’t see him putting up with spending long periods away from them.

Well this season they will be spending most of the summer over there - Hall has cited family reasons, Taylor wants out of his contract apparently. Don't think they'll be the only ones.

Aren't they playing all their home games together this year?

I'm wondering who employs them - there are two Wolfpack ltd companies set up in UK with Nobby as director - it may be easy to employ British lads via uk limited company but harder to justify a 12 week trip to Canada from a visa standpoint.

Referred to in TWPs release statement as "talismanic". The statement makes it clear that he will be very much missed by them.
Our gain for sure. He played almost every game at centre for TWP and is a great kicker. Good signing and will add to our list of players who can also tactically kick during a game.
Welcome Craig.
I watch every game on DVD (thanks Fred) but it will never beat being behind the sticks.
