The Toronto Wolfpack burst onto the rugby league scene in 2016 and after just four short years of existence, climbing the English rugby league ladder to reach the Super League. They laid the platform for the impending Ottawa Stags franchise introduction in 2021.
The Wolfpack’s impact goes beyond rugby league, as it could influence other sports competitions to field teams from all over the globe. That is the desire of a soon to be established Ottawa-based rugby league franchise, to be named the Stags.

In the wake of Toronto’s rugby league success, another club from the ‘Great White North’ has eyed Super League, making plans to reach the pinnacle of the club game. With a 2021 target set for the team’s debut in League 1, here is what we know so far about the new franchise.
From the Toronto Wolfpack to Ottawa Stags
The Ottawa club has a familiar stakeholder; Eric Perez, overseeing its operations. Perez’s name will be familiar to rugby league fans after he masterminded the Toronto Wolfpack’s rapid ascent to the Super League. Perez stepped down from the Wolfpack with the idea of adding a rugby league team to the Canadian capital, Ottawa.
Wolfpack supporters will hope…
