South Sydney Rabbitohs back, Dylan Walker, has been selected in the Auckland Nine’s team of the tournament.
Walker played an integral role for the Rabbitohs across four matches, including the three pool matches against the Dragons, Storm and Panthers, as well as the Quarter Final against host side the New Zealand Warriors.
The Rabbitohs centre joins players the calibre of James Tamou and Andrew Fifita, having wreaked havoc in the out-field against Souths’ opponents. He bagged tries and goals in the process, but pivotally showed great vision for the men in red and green.
Warriors five-eighth Shaun Johnson was named MVP despite his side bowing out in the semi-finals, while the Cowboys’ Kyle Feldt was named Breakout Player of the Tournament.
The South Sydney Rabbitohs would like to congratulate Dylan Walker for his selection in the side.
