The ex-Yeppoon playmaker making history in Canada
RUGBY LEAGUE: He is an Aussie in Canada, playing footy for a team in a United Kingdom based competition.
Yes, you read that correctly.
Ex-Central Queensland man Blake Wallace, is the sole Australian in a team on the verge of history.
After two and a half years with the CQ Capras and Yeppoon Seagulls, Wallace's travels saw him in Toronto, playing for the Wolfpack.
He is part of the first ever Trans-Atlantic rugby league team.
They sit on top of English Rugby League's third tier competition (Kingston Press League 1). After eight games, the Wolfpack sit alone as undefeated ladder leaders.
"It is a special feeling being apart of history with this club," the 24-year-old five-eighth said.
"To be able to travel and play the game I love in different countries unreal. It is so cool to see the people of Toronto come out and support us, especially not being too familiar with the game.
"I really feel like this club is going places and I really believe we have the potential to get into the Super League."
Wallace, whose father is from Rockhampton, was a catalyst for the all-conquering Yeppoon Seagulls in 2014 - he crossed for four tries and 38-individual points in the 46-6 routing over Norths in the grand final.
Still to this day, he carries his grand final winning Seagulls shorts and socks in his kit bag.
"I spent about two and a half years in Rocky and loved every minute of it," the plumber-by-trade said.
"Probably played a handful of games with the Capras and won the local comp under Jason Green. He has really helped my game and got the best footy out of me.

"That grand final was a good day that one. We just all turned up to play and everything fell into place.
"It was a good team effort right across the park. I do feel like I played well though, yes."
That Seagulls team, who did the double, was stacked with talent. Jonus Pearson, Cody Grills, Jonathan Tavinor, Dean Blackman and Jack Kavanagh to name a few.
Wallace is firmly of the stance that his and the Wolfpack's best days are still in front of them.
He steps out on field with former-Parramatta Eels and NRL pin-up boy Fui Fui Moi Moi each week.
"We are like one big family here," Wallace said.
"The boys in the team are a really good bunch of lads and I love both training and playing with them.
"Fui is just like a big kid, always playing jokes on the boys and having a laugh but he brings to much to the team in terms of experience.
"He has done it all so it is great to have him around.
"I'd still love to play NRL one day but right now I just want to play well week to week and improve for the team. I am really excited to see what the next two years bring."
