Take a glimpse into the red and green future. Cody Walker may be coming to Redfern next year, but that hasn’t stopped people from taking notice of his exploits in Queensland’s Intrust Super Cup – the playmaker putting on an electric performance last week to help his Easts Tigers side to this weekend’s Grand Final.
After Wynnum Manly scored the opening points of last week’s preliminary final, Walker proceeded to orchestrate a Tigers revival that included two tries of his own, showcasing everything from electric speed, to accuracy and vision, while also playing an integral role in setting up many other four-pointers in the Tigers’ 30-12 victory.
Walker signed with the Rabbitohs earlier in the year for the 2015 and 2016 NRL seasons
Walker, 24, has been part of the Storm’s system throughout the 2013 and 2014 seasons, playing his football with Queensland Rugby League affiliate, Easts Tigers.
A half/five-eighth who hails from the Casino Cougars, the same junior Club as former Rabbitohs player and current Rabbitohs development coach Matt King, represented the Queensland Residents side in 2013, was the Intrust Super Cup’s leading point scorer last season, and won the Player of the Year award for the Queensland state competition despite missing the first nine matches of the season through injury.
Queensland Rabbitohs Members and supporters are urged to get out to Suncorp Stadium this Sunday to watch Walker’s Easts Tigers take on Northern Pride in the Intrust Super Cup Grand Final.
