Synopsis: This episode is the second of our UK edition and tries to give a view of how people in the UK see the Toronto Wolfpack and what kind of impact the Wolfpack have had on rugby league and the UK itself. Unfortunately, Chris was absent as we put this together but we wanted to get the audio out during this bi-week.
We start off by listening to Martin Vickers who is the Wolfpack man in the UK as helps with logistics and sponsors. Martin was instrumental in connecting us with the right people for our adventure and it wouldn’t have been nearly as amazing without his assistance.
We then speak to Dave Parkinson who holds many titles in the world of Rugby League. He was our guide through the amateur side as we watched Saddleworth Rangers host Leigh East. Great interview even though we were bombarded by mosquitoes.
We end off with a group chat during the halftime Keighley Cougars game. Joined by Mark, James and we also bumped into Dan Fleming’s family.
Great look into how the Toronto Wolfpack are perceived as well as how they have impacted UK business. The show ends by noting the next episode will include our time spent with the Wolfpack team and we will hear from Adam Sidlow, Fuifui Moimoi, Jake Emmitt and Jonny Pownall.
