Ahead of their maiden Qualifiers campaign, ambitious Canadians Toronto Wolfpack have moved to bring in Mason Caton-Brown ahead of today’s 5pm transfer deadline.
Following injuries to threequarters Greg Worthington and Adam Higson, Paul Rowley’s team have brought Wakefield’s 25-year-old in to provide them with further firepower in their quest to reach Super League at the first time of asking. One of the quickest players in the top flight, the London-born winger has a record close to a try per game since joining the club ahead of the 2017 season from Salford but, this year, has seen first team chances limited thanks to the return to fitness of Tom Johnstone who has partnered Ben Jones-Bishop on the flanks.
As such, Trinity – guaranteed to be in the top eight of Super League with one match remaining before the split – have allowed Caton-Brown to leave the club. It is unknown at this moment whether it is just a deal to the end of the season or is a more permanent arrangement. The Wolfpack have beaten the likes of Salford and Hull KR, both of whom have been strongly linked with the player in recent weeks, to the signing of Caton-Brown and they will be confident that he can be a regular threat on their flanks as they seek a second promotion in two years.
