Blake Wallace is one of the biggest personalities at the Wolfpack, after the young Australian made the switch to Canada ahead of the club’s first season on the field in 2017.
Wallace has become a permanent fixture in the Toronto side and a valuable member of the playing group both on an off the field, bringing an upbeat approach and huge level of enthusiasm to everything he does.
Originally born in Wollongong in Australia, Wallace played in both the Queensland Cup for Central Queensland Capras and New South Wales Cup for Illawarra Cutters in the second tier below the NRL before being picked up by the Championship side aged just 23.
The elusive and dangerous ball runner burst onto the scene in Wolfpack colours at stand off, scoring the club’s first ever try in a pre-season friendly against Hull FC, and went on to be a hugely influential figure in helping the Pack gain promotion from League 1.
Despite the club recruiting senior playmakers in the last couple of seasons, Wallace’s application to training and impressive developments have seen him become one of the first names on Brian McDermott’s team sheet, with his running game and pass selection serving as the perfect balance to the chief organiser in the halves.
