The ambitious Canadian rugby league club hopes to acquire the services of All Black's star Sonny Bill Williams after this year's World Cup has repeated their commitment to signing him.
Toronto Wolfpack made headlines earlier this year when they allegedly offered Williams a a year, $ 5 million contract As part of their "whatever it takes" approach to signing the 33 year old.
Wolfpack, who appears to qualify for next year's Super League as they sit at the top of the table in the UK's second division, has revealed that they have a wish list of "10 Super Stars" to strengthen their teams.
Wolfpack's owner David Argyle said he left the finer details for coaching bosses Brian Noble and Brian McDermott, but topping his list is Williams.
"I do not choose who recruited, but my opinion is that it seems good that the club has some of the best names of rugby playing for Wolfpack," Argyle Press Association said.
"I would personally love to see Sonny Bill Williams in a Toronto Wolfpack shirt. Obviously, both brians say and how it works and of course it comes down to what Sonny Bill says.
Argyle said Williams was not the only rugby player they wanted to watch.
"There are a couple of other rugby union players who, after the World Cup, will probably have achieved everything they can in union and may want to come back or jump to rugby league.
"I think it will be really exciting if we are able to secure one or more of these players."
Williams is a popular choice for Toronto not only for his on-field skills, but the great experience he has from playing in the NRL, All Blacks and Kiwis.
It is also understood that they hoped that Williams would be fascinated by the idea of helping to grow the rugby league in Canada, while Wolfpack slowly built a fan base since the team was founded in 2016.
