Toronto Arrows Announce Return of Canadian International Prop Rowland
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TORONTO, ON – The Toronto Arrows are pleased to announce that prop Tyler Rowland has re-signed with the club for the 2023 Major League Rugby season.
Rowland, 23, is returning to the Arrows for a fourth campaign after featuring in 29 matches (11 starts) for the club since his debut in the pandemic-shortened 2020 season.
“I’m excited about the upcoming season and being able to play in front of friends and family once again,” said Rowland. “The team is building for a strong campaign to win the Shield in 2023 and I’m excited to be a part of a good group of lads.”
The six-foot-one, 270-pound forward has produced 409 carry metres on 80 carries, 120 tackles (87.6% completion), 285 ruck arrivals, six tackle breaks, one breakdown steal and one try over his first three seasons with the club.
The native of Mississauga, Ont. has earned seven caps for Canada since making his international debut against Wales in July 2021. He also represented Canada at two World Rugby Under-20 Trophy tournaments, first as an under-ager in 2018, and again in 2019.
Arrow #46 is an alumnus of the Ontario Blues junior men’s provincial program and Rugby Canada’s Pacific Pride national development academy program, and played his grassroots rugby with the Toronto Nomads (Ontario) and the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds (British Columbia).
“We’re really excited to have Tyler back and to see where he can build off of his strong finish to 2022,” said Mark Winokur, Toronto Arrows Chief Operating Officer and General Manager. “He’s a local boy and one whose entire family is woven into the Arrows, and watching him grow before our eyes has been tremendous to see. We can’t wait to see it continue.”
The club will be making additional signing announcements in the coming weeks as 2023 season preparations continue to build.
The window to place a deposit to secure 2023 season memberships for the lowest possible price is now open. Earlybird pricing packages for the club’s home matches at York Lions Stadium start at just $70 for a limited time only.
