Hull send Fash to Toronto

Hull send Fash to Toronto

Betfred Championship leaders Toronto Wolfpack have signed Hull FC prop Brad Fash on a month’s loan to ease their injury crisis.

The Wolfpack have moved to bolster their squad after Bodene Thompson, Bob Beswick and Adam Higson joined their lengthy casualty list following last Saturday’s first defeat of the season in Toulouse.

The 23-year-old Fash, who went on the England Knights tour to Papua New Guinea in the autumn, has made 51 appearances since making his debut for Hull in 2015, while also appearing on loan for Leigh Centurions and Doncaster RLFC.

Hull coach Lee Radford said: “It’s great to give Brad the opportunity to go out to Toronto and get a good number of games to help him get some important match fitness.

“Competition for places in the squad is very high now, so the loan spell will be a good opportunity for Brad to go out and prove himself.”

Fash joins his Black and Whites team-mate Jack Logan on loan at the Canadian club and is set to go straight into their team to play Batley Bulldogs at Hull KR on Sunday.

Fash was in Hull’s 19-man squad for Friday’s home game against Leeds Rhinos and his place has now gone to Danny Washbrook.
