The Penrith Panthers have announced Peter Wallace will captain the club in 2018.

32-year-old Wallace takes of the captaincy from Matt Moylan, who left the Panthers in the off-season to take up a deal with the Cronulla Sharks.

Wallace made his debut with the Panthers in 2005 before making a move to the Brisbane Broncos in 2008 where he spent the next six seasons.

In 2014, Wallace returned to the Panthers and has now played a total of 92 games for the club and 231 NRL games in total.

Playing predominantly as a halfback in his early career, Wallace made the successful shift to hooker for the Panthers club.

Wallace was set to be named as the hooker for NSW in 2017 State of Origin series before being ruled out due to injury.
