Sea Eagles TV caught up with Manly’s NSW representative in Dylan Walker this afternoon.
Dressed smartly in his new Blues suit, Walker spoke to Manly Media Manager Wayne Cousins of his pride in being named in the 19 man NSW squad.
Walker’s utility value at being able to cover full-back, wing, centre, and five-eighth means the exciting Sea Eagles back could well make his NSW debut for the
Blues against Queensland at ANZ Stadium in Game 1 on Wednesday, June 1.
“I feel happy. It is very surreal,’’ Walker said.
“Without my team-mates, I couldn’t be in the spot where I am right now. I believe in individual success comes from your team’s success back at your club.”
Tomorrow, Queensland will name their team with Sea Eagles prop Nate Myles a strong chance of continuing his stellar representative career for the Maroons.
Manly Assistant Coach Anthony Seibold has been appointed as an Assistant Coach of the Maroons.
