RLW Rising rookie: Round One

RLW Rising rookie: Round One Written by STAFF WRITERS, March 9, 2016

IT was a case of no Luke Keary, no problem for South Sydney thanks to the sensational play of debutant Cody Walker. 

The 26-year-old playmaker showcased his skill and poise in navigating the Rabbitohs attack particularly in the second half when Adam Reynolds left the game with a broken jaw.

Walker managed 75 running metres to go with his 23 tackles and try assist he provided for Aaron Gray in the 13th minute.

The pressure is now on Walker to build on his first performance in the NRL after the Bunnies received the shocking news that Reynolds will be sidelined for as long as 12 weeks.
