29 year old Chase Stanley joined Toronto mid way through 2018 after 11 seasons in the NRL.
After coming through the grades at St George Illawarra Dragons back in 2007, the outside back made 70 appearances for the Red V across two spells with the club.
Stanley also played for Melbourne Storm and Canterbury Bulldogs in Australia before linking up with the Wolfpack in 2018.
Despite having his first team appearances limited to just 110 in the NRL due to a number of serious injuries, Stanley’s ability to bounce back shows a tremendous amount of mental toughness and resilience, which is a valuable quality in rugby league.
That character saw him become a New Zealand international for both the Kiwis and Maori, representing his family heritage and proving that he has the quality to play at the very highest level.
With the signing of the rangy centre Toronto gained a player with exceptional balance and speed, which he utilised to full effect across his 19 games in Wolfpack colours last season, scoring nine tries.
Stanley’s height and physical presence make him extremely dangerous on the right edge, enabling a deadly centre partnership with new recruit Ricky Leutele and gives the Pack threats on both sides of the park as the club go in search of promotion in 2019.
