McDermott assures Toronto have cap space

Toronto Wolfpack Head Coach Brian McDermott has assured that Toronto Wolfpack do have the cap space to carry on recruiting.

They have been heavily linked with Kallum Watkins, who left Gold Coast last Saturday. He confirmed they are also in talks with Tony Gigot over a contract following the end of his trial.

On Watkins, he told Sky Sports: “Our deal we have put to him isn’t massive money and, should he come, he falls well within the pay structure we have set to our players.

“If the deal gets done and it’s positive news for us, the level of pay-cut we’re suggesting he comes in would surprise most people.”

He added on Gigot: “His trial finished, we were negotiating a contract until this happened and that’s pretty much where that’s at.

“He never signed and then this thing happened where he went back to France to be with his family. That’s a live situation and it hasn’t been put to bed yet.”
