The Toronto Wolfpack’s decision to withdraw from the 2020 Super League season has sparked doubt over where it leaves players contracted to the club.
The wife of former Leeds Rhinos captain and Gold Coast Titans Englishman Kallum Watkins took to social media to deliver an epic spray at the Wolfpack, making claims of payments not being honoured on time, and frustration within the team about players and their families being left in limbo.
“Past giving a f–k,” Sophie Watkins wrote on her Instagram story.
"Welcome to the rugby league s–t show.
"I can reveal that the Wolfpack’s 22-man squad have had their wages paid consistently late for several months, putting severe mental strain on their players.
"The club, who were promoted into Super League for the first time at the end of 2019, is currently facing a lawsuit in Canada over alleged unpaid bills and has previously faced legal action over monies owed and claims from other creditors.
"They don’t give a s–t. There’s a lot of people owed money. It’s just a disaster. I don’t think people understand the mental stress it puts on people. Some of the players with kids, mortgages, bills - I’m worried. It’s crazy.
“We got told the money will be a week late. And then the week comes and no money, and then the week comes and no money, and then the next week and the next week. What gets us is we get told on the night the money’s coming and then it just doesn’t come.”
