Broncos reward youth product Wallace
London Broncos have announced the re-signing of Jonathan Wallace on a two-year deal to cover the 2015 and 2016 seasons.
Wallace, 19, made his first team debut earlier this season against Wigan Warriors having been promoted from the Broncos Under-19s set up, and has played six games so far this season. He also represented Malta in last season's international against Denmark.
"I'm delighted to confirm Jonathan as my first signing at the club,” said Head Coach Joey Grima.
"He's played six Super League games so far this season and has been impressive in all. He has a great work ethic in training and on the pitch. Jonathan has come through the junior ranks at the club which gives us extra satisfaction that we have some good systems in place to produce such talented players.”
Wallace is equally delighted saying: "I'm really pleased to sign a new deal, things with Joey have been really positive so far, so I'll be really glad to play under him for a further two years.”
"To play six Super League games already in the season is a real positive and I feel I'm really coming on as a player.”
Wallace joined the Broncos after being identified playing for community club Croydon Hurricanes and progressed through both the Scholarship and Academy systems before making his Super League debut.
"In terms of speed and physicality it's a big step up from the under-19s,” said Wallace. "Even the training regime is a big shock on the body but I'm starting to get into it now.
"We're focused on this season so I'm not thinking about next year yet. We're trying to get some wins on the board. I want to stay in London. I love London, the club and the people so I'll be around for a while.”
