With the easy option to sit back and use the excuse that the news this week would ultimately hamper the side’s preparation for a match against the Bulldogs, prop forward Jarrod Wallace has said it could have an opposite effect and help the group move forward.

Whilst disappointed Neil Henry was released from his position on Monday this week, the Runaway Bay junior knows the playing group will stick together.
“The side will show character and stick together,” Wallace said. “There has obviously been plenty of the off-field stuff but we’re looking forward to getting out there.
“We want to have a good game and hopefully have a good win. We have a tight playing group and we’re trying to move forward. We want to finish the year strong.”
Whilst plenty of interest has now shifted to the recruitment of a new Head Coach, Wallace believes there are plenty of positives about the role at the club.
“It’s a young club and has shown signs in the last few years of how good they can be.
“We’ve showed promise this year but with injuries and so on, we’ve used around 35 players and if you’re wanting to compete at the top you’re usually only using low-20s.
“We’ve got a good facility at our home base at Parkwood and I think it is the perfect place for someone to start out a coaching career.”
