Wallace keen to lead from the front for years to come
JARROD Wallace says the next generation of forwards are ready to lead Queensland to further victories, after starring in Wednesday night’s series win.
Wallace was one of the new faces introduced into the Maroons pack this year, with Dylan Napa, Coen Hess and Tim Glasby also all handed their debuts over the series.
The injection of young blood proved to be a success for Queensland, and Titans enforcer Wallace hopes the new combinations can reap rewards for many years to come.
“I just want to keep that jersey for as long as I can, and get this as much as I can,” Wallace said. “The feeling is unreal. It’s outstanding.
“I love playing with Josh ( McGuire) and did it for so long ( at Brisbane). Then big Naps, I love playing beside him. You know he’s always going to turn up for you.
“The whole team just keep turning out for each other ... there’s no better feeling than winning a decider at Suncorp.”
Coach Kevin Walters praised all his new forwards after the match, particularly for their defence, with just four tackles missed by the entire pack across the night.
Wallace was one of the standouts after he made 97m off 11 runs, did not miss a single tackle and scored a try.
