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”.
