TORONTO ARROWS ANNOUNCE SIGNING OF HOMETOWN WING DAN MOOR
(TORONTO, ON) – The Toronto Arrows have added another potent weapon to their arsenal ahead of their inaugural Major League Rugby campaign, today announcing the signing of Canadian international wing Dan Moor.
The 28-year-old Toronto native joins the club from Yorkshire Carnegie of the RFU Championship.
A product of the Rugby Ontario club and representative system, Moor has won multiple MacTier Cups and McCormick Cups with the Ontario Blues and Balmy Beach, respectively. The wing is also a full Canadian international, having represented Canada 14 times since his debut against Uruguay in February 2016.
“I am very thankful for the opportunity with the Arrows and to join these players and the organization more broadly in what will be a great challenge in the club’s first season in the MLR,” said Moor. “It is exciting times for rugby in my hometown, and I can’t wait to be a part of it.”
Moor competed for Oxford University prior to joining Yorkshire Carnegie, notably winning a Blue in the iconic Varsity Match against Cambridge last year.
“Dan is an exciting, dynamic player who brings a wealth of experience to our club,” said Arrows Vice President and General Manager Mark Winokur. “When the opportunity came up to bring Dan home to Toronto, we pushed hard for it. He’s an elite Canadian talent with an unrivalled work ethic, and he’ll serve as a strong role model to some of our younger guys as we begin our MLR journey.”
With the signing of Moor, Toronto has now confirmed 21 players ahead of the 2019 MLR season.
The Arrows will be making more player, staff and ticketing announcements in the coming days as season preparations continue to build.
