Wolfpack Sign Canadian Quinn Ngawati

Toronto Wolfpack is pleased to announce the return of inaugural squad member Quinn Ngawati, with the 20-year-old signing on to rejoin the Club.
The first Canadian player to ever play for the club, Ngawati was one of the most memorable stories to come out of the Wolfpack journey’s earliest days. He will begin playing with League One side Rochdale Hornets (dual registration) while working out and training with the Wolfpack full-time.
Taking part in pre-season trials ahead of the Wolfpack’s debut season, Ngawati impressed coaches and players alike with his athleticism and ability to adapt. As a result, he was rewarded with a place on the Club’s list for their historic debut season.
An extremely popular member of the squad, Ngawati’s relentless commitment, and positive attitude saw him make his professional debut against Gloucester at Lamport Stadium on July 8, 2017. Toronto would win that game 62-10, with Ngawati coming off the bench and holding his position in the team for the following round.
In March 2018, Ngawati was sent on loan to London Skolars following a strong pre-season. He would play in nine games for the Skolars and score his maiden professional try before being recalled to Toronto to play in the Championship against Featherstone Rovers.
Ngawati is also no stranger to the international stage, representing Canada against the United States on September 16, 2017. Assuming the kicking duties, Ngawati scored six points in his national team debut.
Toronto Wolfpack Head Coach, Brian McDermott, spoke of the Club’s excitement at the return of Ngawati:
“Everyone at the Club talks positively about Quinn and the impact he had on the early days of the Wolfpack. He has done all the right things in the intervening years and we are delighted to welcome him back into the fold.”
