The attacking prowess and excitement with ball in hand that Ryan Brierley brings to Toronto can not be understated, with the half back having a huge impact on the club since joining the Canadians in 2017.
Although slight in stature, Brierley has forged a reputation as one of the most potent try scorers in the game, scoring a sensational 133 tries in 125 appearances for Championship rivals Leigh Centurions after debuting for his local club in 2012.
Five years as one of the main organisers with the Centurions earned Brierley a chance in Super League, joining Huddersfield Giants, where he continued his notable try scoring form with 15 in just 26 appearances at the top level.
As an obviously impressive talent, Toronto snapped up the 27 year old a year and a half into his Giants contract, and Brierley made an immediate impact with the Pack on the field and became a key player in helping the club achieve promotion from League 1 in 2017.
Guaranteed to make an impact in ever game he plays, the Scottish international possesses superb pace and a terrific ability to read the game, making him one of the best support players in the business as well as a quality general in the middle.
