Familiar surroundings for Walker at Rabbitohs clinic

South Sydney Rabbitohs five-eighth Cody Walker got down to the home of the Redfern All Blacks, Alexandria Park, to help put smiles on kids' faces at a junior clinic.

Returning to familiar surroundings, Walker helped run drills, take photos and sign autographs on a cheery evening.

"It's a pretty familiar place, I'm always down here," said Walker.

"My two sons play for the Redfern All Blacks and I love getting down here and helping the kids and the coaches out."

Taking charge of his first training session, Walker's main focus was to make sure the kids were simply enjoying themselves.

"They're a little bit too young to pass on advice too," said Walker.

"Right now, it's just about getting them out there and letting them have a go and making sure they're enjoying their footy.

"As you can see there were that many smiling faces out here, the young kids were scoring tries and tackling and that's what grass footy is all about."

Whilst Walker has both his sons Kian and Kade playing for the local club, his wife Nellie also plays for them in the women's team and although Walker has been in pretty impressive form this season, he has received some strong competition from his better half.

"They're travelling pretty well, she showed me up the other week, she scored three tries so I've got to try and catch her," Walker laughed.

Also, down at the clinic was Club captain Greg Inglis, who couldn't keep the smile off his face as the junior players hurled themselves at each other.

"It's a great feeling," said Inglis.

"I think it's a great initiative by Souths Cares and the South Sydney Rabbitohs, the most important thing is to give back to the community and to grassroots footy."

"That's the whole point of playing sport is to make sure you're having fun. You can see here tonight with the Redfern All Blacks squads you can see there is a real sense of happiness around."
