Wallace could potentially play in the pivot role

It is a hot topic amongst the Brisbane faithful, following the departure club stalwart and five-eighth Darren Lockyer – but Broncos coach Anthony Griffin is yet to rule out a potential move for halfback Peter Wallace to five-eighth, if young halves Ben Hunt and Corey Norman fail to fire.

With both Hunt and Norman set to dust off the cobwebs and go toe-to-toe for the five-eighth role in the club’s trial against the Titans, Griffin says that Wallace is a back-up option for the role, if required.

“It’s an option,” conceded Griffin when asked if Wallace could play five-eighth.

The consideration comes after Griffin felt that both Hunt and Norman failed to take the game to the Cowboys in the second half, and put the challenge forward to the young halves, to play well against quality opposition.

“At the moment I’m happy to keep Pete at number seven,” said Griffin when the question was posed after training at Royal Pines on Friday morning.

“Pete came here as a five-eighth so I know he can play there.

“That may be an option but at the moment we’re concentrating on him staying at halfback.”
