Nick Rawsthorne’s career path to the Wolfpack was unorthodox compared to most budding rugby league stars, with the young outside back making a late switch at the age of just 18 from rugby union having played for Leeds Carnegie in the junior grades.
Rawsthorne quickly impressed in the 13 man code and graduated through Halifax’s academy system to make his first team debut in the Betfred Championship in 2016.
The 23 year old quickly drew attention from Super League and signed for Hull FC in 2017, making three appearances at the top level before opting to run with the Pack on a two year deal ahead of the 2018 season.
Confident either in the centres or on the wing, Rawsthorne made an instant impact on the Toronto side, establishing himself as a notable try scorer, with plenty of pace and agility making him a real attacking weapon out wide.
The former Hull man’s try scoring record speaks for itself as he touched down 18 times in just 19 appearances in Wolfpack colours in 2018.
At such a young age, the versatile back is still in the fledgling stages of his rugby league career and will be looking to take his game to a new level in Toronto’s charge for promotion in 2019.
