Broncos' Peter Wallace wants early return from injury
Peter Wallace says he'll be back earlier than expected from injury.
After tearing the medial ligament in his knee in Sunday’s 44-16 win over Cronulla at Suncorp Stadium, the initial thought was that he would be sidelined for at least four to six weeks.
But Wallace revealed today that he would aim for sooner.
“I am hoping it will be three or four weeks but we’ll have to see how it recovers over the next couple of weeks," he said.
With the Broncos facing some tough competition in the upcoming rounds (the Bulldogs, Knights, Storm and the Titans, plus his desire for State of Origin selection, it’s no wonder he can’t wait to get back out onto the field.
Definitely out for Friday night’s match against Canterbury, Broncos coach Ivan Henjak will decide today on Wallace’s replacement.
It will be between past stand-in Ben Hunt or rookie Corey Norman.
However, having donned the #7 jersey on occassion last year, Hunt is more likely to partner Darren Lockyer for the match.
The game against the Bulldogs can be seen live on Channel Nine at 7:30pm Friday.
