Since crossing to the Wolfpack in 2018, Andy Ackers has not put a foot wrong on his way to becoming one of strongest members of the Club’s squad. Able to provide dynamic performances while in the starting line-up, Ackers has also been used successfully as an explosive substitute throughout his Toronto tenure.
Endlessly tough both mentally and physically, Ackers can get a pass away when it is least expected and has mastered the art of the surprise run from dummy-half, something that has seen him score an impressive number of points for the Wolfpack.
The enigmatic Ackers has now thrilled Toronto fans for two full seasons with his trademark sprints, desperate lunges and tackling strength that belies his size. Originally hailing from Wigan, Ackers recently passed 150 career appearances, many of which came in Swinton Lions and London Broncos jerseys.
In 2019, Ackers appeared in every fixture for the Wolfpack, including the Semi-Final and Playoff Final, and scored 12 tries, including one in his 150th game milestone. Now a critical piece of the Wolfpack on-field machine, Ackers will be looking to step his game up to another level in 2020, something everyone connected with the Club knows he will be able to achieve seamlessly.
