Writing on the wall for Wallace

Peter Wallace will have a lot to think about over the Christmas break.

With one year remaining on his contract at the Panthers, Wallace’s future has been in the headlines since Anthony Griffin joined the club.  It’s common knowledge both didn’t see eye to eye at the Broncos.

It wouldn’t come as a surprise if Wallace seals his future in the UK over the summer break and the club potentially provide him a release on good terms.  It’s unlikely any other Sydney club will take up a contract for someone aged thirty in the halves position.

Wallace isn’t the only one on borrowed time. His halves partner Jamie Soward is probably next to be linked with Super League.  His former relationship with Championship 1 side London Broncos might be an option.

It’s quite clear Griffin is looking towards the future.

I can see it either later in 2016 or early 2017 that the Panthers halves combination will be Matt Moylan and Te Maire Martin.

Moylan’s talent is somewhat wasted at the back and he needs to be closer to play for his creativity to flourish.

Martin is the unknown at top level but with so many positive things about the Junior Kiwi, transitioning to the top level will be easy for him.

Let’s hope for both player and club that his future is resolved sooner rather than later and everyone involved can move on.
