Riders add kicker from “down under”

After shipping kicker Kaare Vedvick to Montreal for QB Antonio Pipkin earlier this month, the Riders have added another kicker to the roster.

Ryan Meskell is from the Gold Coast in Australia and played his collegiate ball at University of Hawaii. He played three seasons at the U of H, suiting up in 41 games during that stretch.

He has one game of experience in the CFL after suiting up, and playing for the Edmonton Elks in a game against BC in week #9.

The Riders next game is this Sunday, when the green and white welcome in their rivals from Winnipeg for the annual “Labour Day Classic”.
