The 24-year-old joins the Arrows following the completion of his successful three-year spell at Leeds Beckett University (England), where the Mississauga native was a standout in the BUCS Super Rugby league.
Wadden has made several international appearances for Canada in recent years, including national development team selections to Canada ‘A’ (2016 and 2017 Americas Pacific Challenge; 2016 UK / Ireland Tour) and the Canada Selects (2018 France Tour). The 6’5”, 240-pound lock was also selected to Canada’s Under-20 squad in both 2015 (as an under-ager) and 2016.
Like many of his Arrows teammates, Wadden is a graduate of the Ontario Blues provincial program. Wadden also played two seasons of Ontario University Athletics rugby with the McMaster Marauders (2014, 2015) prior to becoming a nationally-carded athlete and moving to Rugby Canada’s central hub in Langford, B.C.
Wadden played his grassroots rugby with the Oakville Crusaders.
