Young gun Andy Ackers enters his first season with the Wolfpack after establishing himself as one of the promising stars of the Championship. The former Wigan Academy graduate has enjoyed four seasons in the second division, with both Swinton Lions and most recently London Broncos.
A gifted dummy half with a good feel for the game, Ackers inclusion in the Wolfpack squad this year has provided the perfect blend of experience and youth. Toronto’s veteran rake Bob Beswick will give the youngster the ideal mentor to further develop his craft.
Ackers is extremely tough and tenacious in defence making him an ideal asset in the middle third of the field and boasts an impressive eye for the try line. He boasts 42 tries in just 98 first team appearances throughout his career, and is definitely one to watch for the fans in Canada.
At just 24, Ackers is still just in the fledgling stage of his career and the prospect of him developing and progressing in Wolfpack colours is one that is hugely exciting for the club.
