Dave Taylor claims Canadian outfit Toronto Wolfpack have a more professional set-up than some NRL clubs.
A former Kangaroo and Maroons State of Origin player, Taylor has had spells with Brisbane, South Sydney, Gold Coast and Canberra.
The forward spent the 2017 NRL season with the Raiders.
Taylor has now shifted to the English Championship and new club Toronto, along with former NRL players Ashton Sims and Josh McCrone.
And the 29-year-old has been impressed by the Wolfpack's training facilities in England, at the Platt Lane Sports Complex at Manchester Metropolitan University.
"It’s a really good set-up," he told the Toronto website.
"It’s actually a little bit better than some clubs in Australia, which they’re the elite of our sport. To have a better place than some of the Australian sides, it’s an advantage for us and we’ve definitely got to use it up."
Toronto were only formed in 2017 and achieved promotion in their first season from the third tier League 1 competition.
The club is aiming for back-to-back promotions and to be in Super League next year.
"Hopefully we could put the side into Super League," Taylor said.
"We’re looking to take it game-by-game. I’ve got the experience and the know-how of professional football. Hopefully I can come here and help the boys move forward. I'm excited."
