Rugby league fans far and wide pay tribute to Peter Wallace, following his immediate retirement from the game.
The term is thrown about freely but Peter Wallace is THE toughest bloke I have seen play football. He has proven this on numerous times playing on with an injury that would have others sidelined immediately.— Ross Martin (@RossMartin1960) June 11, 2018
Thanks for being a Panther Wal.
Talk about playing with pain! Serious knee injuries, congrats Peter on a great career. Rapt to see him staying on @PenrithPanthers astute footy brain will be invaluable on coaching staff @7NewsSydney @PhilGould15 @markMGgeyer 👍 https://t.co/Zg1JGyn20H— Jim Wilson (@JimWilsonTV) June 11, 2018
What a selfless act. He has always put the team first. Best of luck with your next role. You’ll leave the team in a much better place than when you found it. https://t.co/jfCZ41yMFS— Cam (@camliveshere) June 11, 2018
Shattering news. I don't think I've ever seen a tougher player. Remarkable what Wal put himself through for the team. Selfless to the last. Go well mate. https://t.co/qafgDWIvXN— Chris Kennedy (@CKennedy80) June 11, 2018

Peter Wallace is one of the toughest people I've ever seen play! Selfless, dedicated and committed to those around him. It has been an honour calling him my captain, the personification of a leader. #pantherpride— Ben 'Teach' Cummins (@pantherman45) June 11, 2018
Wow.. what news to wake up to. Thank you for everything you did for the club Wal. One of the hardest players going around. Sad to think I wont get to see him play again. #ThanksWal https://t.co/eGkruK3Sbl— Laura (@SelvaggioStud) June 11, 2018
