Super League target Jarrod Wallace has made a shock decision on his future.
Wallace had been linked with a move to Super League with the Daily Telegraph previously reporting that the Gold Coast Titans prop forward was one of ten NRL players who had been offered to clubs in the northern hemisphere.
Others included in that list were the likes of Josh McGuire – who is set to join Super League in 2023 – and Josh Mansour, but 30-year-old Wallace has instead decided to sign on the dotted line for Wayne Bennett’s side the Dolphins.
Wallace joins Melbourne trio Felise Kaufusi and Kenny and Jesse Bromwich, South Sydney Rabbitohs’ Mark Nicholls, North Queensland Cowboys’ Tom Gilbert and Parramatta Eels forward Ray Stone as big recruits for the NRL’s newest side from 2023.
“Jarrod is a highly-experienced front rower who has had involvement in winning State of Origin teams and has also experienced the pressure of a Grand Final,” Dolphins’ chief executive officer Terry Reader said.
“We are really excited about the forward pack we have built so far, and Jarrod is just another key piece of that puzzle.
“He was also born in Queensland and has played for both the Broncos and Titans, so will understand just how big and important our local derbies against the other Queensland teams will be next year.”
