Ben LeSage, 25, is a youthful package of experience, defensive power, work ethic, leadership and line-breaking speed to fit the attacking mindset of the Giltinis.
The 6’0” (1.83m), 216lb (98kg) LeSage had his own outstanding 2021 campaign recognised. He was named as outside centre in the All-MLR First Team selected from the competition’s 12 clubs.
The Calgary-born recruit is instantly a candidate to replace Ashley-Cooper in the side. His experience in MLR, with 18 games in two seasons for the Arrows, gives him a flying start.
