Tackle Talks with the Toronto Wolfpack, Rec Room, Toronto, ON

This evening I attended Tackle Talks with the Toronto Wolfpack.

Join the Toronto Wolfpack live at The Rec Room for a special Tackle Talks event on Wednesday, August 14. The event will feature panels with Wolfpack players Greg Worthington, Darcy Lussick, Gareth O'Brien and Anthony Mullally and coaches and will feature a live Q & A. Fans will have the chance to meet and take photos with players after the show. It will be hosted by Wolfpack in-stadium host Rob Cardno, with doors opening at 6 p.m. and the event itself getting underway at 7. Tickets are FREE with RSVP.

There were free pictures available ... you could get them autographed afterwards.

The Betfred Championship League Leaders’ Shield, which the Wolfpack won a couple weeks ago, was on display.

Me and the shield!

Jefferson, the Wolfpack mascot, was hanging out with the crowd beforehand ... everyone loves Jefferson!

Then he took to the stage posing with the shield .... Jefferson is not a shy guy!

Host Rob Cardno, who is also the announcer at the Wolfpack games, started the evening.

Majority owner David Argyle welcomed everyone and introduced Bob Hunter, the new Wolfpack chairman and interim CEO.

Rob and Bob chatted.

Rob then chatted with members of the Wolfpack staff.  It was interesting to get the background scoop.
