BULLS prop Dan Fleming’s move to Toronto Wolfpack has finally been confirmed.

The newly-formed Canadian team will enter British rugby league’s third tier next season and have targeted a place in the top flight within the next three to five years.

The club is being fronted by Toronto-born businessman Eric Perez and is financed largely by wealthy Australian businessman David Argyle, a mining investor.

The team itself is being headed up by former Great Britain coach Brian Noble and ex-Leigh boss Paul Rowley, who have announced Wales international Fleming as their latest signing.

That took the number of confirmed recruits to seven following the signing of Warrington duo James Laithwaite and Gary Wheeler, Canada captain Rhys Jacks, Australian half-back Blake Wallace, Wakefield outside back Craig Hall and Leigh winger Liam Kay.

Fleming has struggled for game-time at Odsal since joining at the start of last season and spent time on loan at Swinton this year.

But the 24-year-old is delighted to be part of the Wolfpack in 2017 and said: “To become a member of the first professional Canadian rugby league team was an opportunity not to be missed.

“I’m looking forward to meeting the fans and playing at The Den.”

Toronto will play home and away fixtures in four or five-match blocks, with crowds of up to 10,000 expected for their games at the Lamport Stadium.

 Head coach Rowley added: “It was always our goal to recruit clean-living quality individuals and Dan certainly fits that bill.

“He is a young forward who has the attributes and attitude to progress further.”
