A number of Toronto Wolfpack players have urged the Rugby Football League to help them as they have now gone three months without pay.

Darcy Lussick, Gareth O’Brien and Gadwin Springer took to Twitter on Monday evening to shine a light on their plights, with Australian prop Lussick saying he was about to be evicted from his home.

In a series of tweets, Lussick said: “3 months with no pay for the players, staff and families of the @TOwolfpack .. #mentalhealth @TheRFL @SuperLeague.

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines

“Technically stranded in UK. No visa so I can’t work, no help getting home to Australia as promised. About to be evicted from my house. A lot of people have it a lot worse than me but this situation has gone too far now. @TheRFL.

“@TheRFL when are you going to step in and help the welfare of players who are contracted to your competition?”

The Wolfpack – Super League‘s only transatlantic club – last month cited “overwhelming financial challenges” for their decision to temporarily withdraw from the competition.

O’Brien and Springer posted: “Third month of no pay for the players, staff and families of @TorontoWolfpackOfficial @RugbyFootballLeague #Forgotten #Mentalhealth”.
