The reason for this is to get him game time and help him develop. You need to remember the kid hasn't even turned 19 yet and he is a long term project player for the Wolfpack. This will get him up to speed and prepare him for the inevitable step up in class. He is 18 years old and is 6'4, 220lbs. I watched him in a few games last year and he didn't look out of place, he will be a force to reckoned with in a few years.
As for Canadian players, rumour is the Wolfpack will be holding open tryouts in Canada. What I've read is this will happen maybe after the end of this season. I've also heard from a good source that they are potentially on the verge of signing a Rugby Union crossover athlete. Arygle shared a pint with some fans at the game in Sheffield and he wouldn't say who it was but dropped that tidbit.
It might be a National team player from Rugby Canada, DTH is leaving Newcastle and was rumoured to be heading back to Glasgow but I've read he is looking at retirement and maybe the Wolfpack hauled out the check book? I know they have very deep pockets. This is just speculation on my part but I know for a fact attracting high calibre Union players is going to be part of their strategy going forward.
