Eric Wallace was delisted by North Melbourne today after three years with the club as an International Rookie. Wallace did not play an AFL match with the club, spending his first two years playing with North Ballarat and this year with Werribee in the VFL Wallace was popular with team-mates at the club and a successful ruckman at VFL level. A strong ruck brigade at North Melbourne meant that there was never really an opening for him to make that AFL debut.
There is a chance that another club may offer Wallace a life line as able ruckmen of his stature are still in short supply generally around the league. Beyond that the USAFL may be keen to secure Wallace's services for the US Revolution team in the 2017 International Cup if he is interested in continuing in the game.
The statement from North Melbourne today follows.
