Wallace ‘ can earn Kangaroos spot’
MATT Gillett believes former Broncos teammate Jarrod Wallace can go from bench player to Origin to the Kangaroos, as the pair prepare to meet in Saturday’s derby clash against the Titans.
Brisbane’s forward pack has labelled Wallace one of their biggest threats for this weekend’s showdown.
Wallace left the Broncos at the end of last year, after three seasons of being a regular off the bench for Brisbane.
Since he joined the Titans he has flourished as one of the club’s best forwards earning his Queensland Origin debut earlier this year.
But Gillett says even though the Gold Coast can no longer make this year’s finals, he believes Wallace still has plenty to prove, especially with the World Cup awaiting in October. “If he continues to play the quality football he’s been doing so far, there’s no reason he wouldn’t be in the mix for an Australian jersey,” Gillett said.
Sam Thaiday was also of the opinion that Wallace will be a danger man.
“Playing here at the Broncos and the year that he has had so far, he will want to come out and prove a point,” Thaiday said.
