- Quinn Ngawati
- Second Row
- 6ft 4in
UPDATE: Quinn Ngawati returned to Paul Rowley’s squad in Toronto in June, having spent 3 months on loan with London Skolars. He joined Skolars alongside Ryan Burroughs and made 7 appearances for the League 1 side before his move back to Canada.
Quinn Ngawati is arguably one of the biggest success stories to come out of Toronto Wolfpack so far. An absolute unknown to many before 2017, Ngawati is unique in almost every sense in rugby league circles and was the first outright Canadian player to sign for the club after graduating through a successful trial process at the beginning of last season.
Originally from Victoria in British Columbia, Ngawati agreed professional terms with the Wolfpack and even made his first team debut in round 14 of the club’s League 1 season, coming off the bench against Gloucester All Golds and made history by being the first Canadian player to play professional rugby league.
Ngawati has represented Canada in both codes of rugby at junior level, but, following a season in which he developed massively under the tutelage of Paul Rowley, he made his senior international debut for Canada in 2017, kicking three goals against the USA prior to the Rugby League World Cup.
The young centre or second rower turned 19 in June, making him the youngest member of Toronto’s squad. His enthusiasm for the game and eagerness to learn have made him a popular member of the playing group.
