Wallace aims for consistency at Broncos

Rejuvenated halfback Peter Wallace wants to play with the same consistency as the NRL's "gun" players this season.

Now over the anguish of a cruel ankle fracture that cut him down during last year's finals series when he was in career-best form, Wallace is determined to eradicate the mid-year fade out of his game after starting the past two seasons in hot form.

"Both years up here I've started well then probably dropped off a bit," Wallace told AAP before his comeback game against Redcliffe on Saturday night.

"It's a mental thing and something I really want to rectify this year.

"I want play consistently all year and not just in patches.

"If you look at all the gun players, Locky, Cameron Smith, (Johnathan) Thurston they go out and do it every week and it's definitely something I have to work on."

Wallace said he had come to terms with last year's injury and moved on.

"That's footy, I've been injured before, you have to put it out of your mind as best you can," he said.

Wallace, who made the NSW Origin side in his first season with Brisbane in 2008, has completed his apprenticeship, and is looking forward to lining up inside Lockyer again.

Neither have stepped out in a trial but Wallace didn't think it would take long for them to click.

"The way we finished off last year was the best footy we'd played together," said Wallace.

"It took us a few years to get the combination going but we know each other's game a lot better now."

Wallace was confident he had shaken a niggling hamstring twinge that threatened to delay his return.

"It seems like an eternity since I played, not being able to train with the boys because of the hamstring," he said.

"I came back a little early the first time but this time we've taken it slower and I've trained for a full week and it's been pretty intense.

"Touch wood it's gone."
