Blessed with a larger-than-life personality and scintillating sidestep, Blake Wallace’s journey to becoming a permanent member of the Wolfpack team has been one of hard-work and determination.
Hailing from Wollongong in Australia, Wallace has been on the Wolfpack roster since their inaugural season and scored the Club’s first ever try. Since then he has proven himself as an elusive runner that never fails to step up to every challenge.
2019 will always be a memorable year for Wallace, not least of all for the stunning try that set Lamport Stadium alight during the Playoff Final. With the season on the line, Wallace gave everything in a push for the line that left defenders in his wake and sparked the Wolfpack into life and inspired a famous victory that secured Super League promotion.
Wallace pulled on the Wolfpack jersey 22 times in 2019 and collected an impressive total of 132 points, including 16 tries. A player that has gotten better with each passing week during his time in Toronto, Wallace is primed for the Club’s maiden Super League campaign and will be integral in their desire to not just perform at the top level but to challenge for the title.
After a strong junior career in Australia, Wallace made his professional debut with the Wolfpack in 2017 as a 24 year old and immediately showed his worth to the fledgling side. He has become a favourite with both fans and players as a result of his energetic personality and hardworking attitude, traits that saw him one of the first picked by Brian McDermott each week in 2019. Ready to take his game to another level in 2020, the product of Wollongong in Australia will be one to watch on the biggest stage.
