After much conjecture surrounding his future and reports that he was set to leave at one stage, South Sydney Rabbitohs fans can now rest easy with the news that Cody Walker has re-signed.
Walker’s new deal is for a further two seasons in the colours of cardinal and myrtle and will see him stay at the club until the end of 2020.
Since making his NRL debut back in 2014, Walker has since played in 44 NRL games and has scored 14 tries in that time.
One of the leading halves in the game in terms of statistics, the 28-year old is pleased to have his future sorted at the club he made his debut with.
“I’m very happy to have my future sorted, especially with the club where I debuted,” Walker said.
“Coming into Redfern this morning to sign the contract confirmed how much Souths feels like home for me and my family.
“The Members are a fantastic support for us as well, and I’m looking forward to having a big year alongside my team mates and the coaches in 2018.”
New coach Anthony Seibold is aware of Walker’s talents and is pleased to see him remain, knowing how crucial he is to their side.
“Cody has really matured and grown into the role of a key position player and a lot of that is down to his perseverance,” Coach Seibold said.
“He is an integral part of what we’re trying to do here going forward. He showed in his performances in the halves last year that he can play the consistent footy, and make the impact, that’s required at this elite level.”
“I’m really happy that he has re-signed and we’re all looking forward to working with Cody to see the heights that he can reach in the Rabbitohs’ colours.”
