(Toronto) The Toronto Wolfpack have signed 26 year old halfback Greg Worthington. Worthington started his career as a Huddersfield junior before signing for Featherstone. While there he played a huge part in what proved a dominant era for the Rovers.
He was then recruited by current Wolfpack head coach Paul Rowley then with the Leigh Centurions, and has been an integral part of their success.
Rowley was enthusiastic in his welcoming of Worthington; “Greg is a player i hold in high regard after coaching against him. My respect for him only strengthened when I got the chance to coach him, so it’s with great delight that the opportunity should arise again after he became available, and he showed so much commitment, and excitement to join our club from its birth, and help shape its future. Greg will without doubt, become a Wolfpack favourite.
Wolfpack assistant coach Simon Finnigan was equally as enthused; “The pack welcome Greg to Toronto in another huge statement of intent after playing outstanding throughout 2016 for Leigh Centurions it’s a real coup for us to attract a player in such high demand. To find out Greg was out of contract and had not been tied down was music to our ears and we acted quickly to get his signature.
Worthington was excited by the prospect of joining the Pack. “I am really looking forward to starting a new adventure, and taking rugby league over to Canada. The opportunity to be part of something starting from scratch, really appealed to me, and is a great opportunity to see a different part of the world.”
