Dylan Walker | 'My legs had the jitters'

Dylan Walker admits the responsibility of kicking that winning goal in golden point was getting to him.

After two failed attempts in regulation time, Walker said the nerves were there as he lined up the penalty goal attempt from 40m out.  

“I was nervous. My legs had the jitters it was like, oh, just get it please,’’ Walker said.

“I was sort of praying and I was lucky enough it went over, Daly had complete confidence. He just said knock it over”.

“I honestly thought I missed it, but then everyone sort of stopped, and the boys started running over. It was probably when I realised it just went over.

When asked about the being sledged by Raiders Josh Hodgson after his second missed conversion, Walker replied.

“It is competitive sport…they were trying to knock my confidence around and I reacted. It wasn’t the smartest thing as I was by myself down there.

“He wants to win, and I want to win.”

Tonight’s win makes it three from three away victories for the Sea Eagles after defeating the Cowboys (R3) and the Roosters (R5).
