The evergreen Bob Beswick is in his third year with Toronto after being one of the original contingent of players to sign up for the Canadian venture ahead of the 2017 season.
2019 is the crafty dummy half’s 16th professional season, with a chance for Beswick to crack the 400 career appearance mark this season in Wolfpack colours, making him one of the most experienced players in the club’s ranks.
The Wigan junior made his Super League debut in 2004 and played for the Cherry and Whites at the top level for two years before establishing himself as one of the most competitive and creative hookers at Championship level across a superb ten year stint, including spells at Widnes, Halifax and most recently Leigh before running with the Pack.
As well as having the experience domestically, the 34 year old is one of the most capped internationals for Ireland, with 25 caps to his name across three World Cups.
Beswick is one of the real leaders in Toronto’s squad, and leads by example both on and off the field through a high level of professionalism as well as a tremendous work ethic that often sees him top the tackle count, and he’ll undoubtedly be a key figure in what the Wolfpack hope will be a promotion winning campaign in 2019.
