Blake Wallace Re-Signs With The Wolfpack
After signing a two-year contract extension, Blake Wallace will get his first taste of Super League in 2020 when the Toronto Wolfpack begin their maiden campaign in the top division. The first player to ever score a try for the Wolfpack, Wallace was a member of the Club’s inaugural squad and the upcoming season will be his fourth in Wolfpack colours.
2019 will always be a memorable year for Wallace, not least of all for a stunning try that set Lamport Stadium alight during the Playoff Grand Final on October 5. 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.
