Manly Warringah Sea Eagles has today been advised that Dylan Walker will be stood down by the NRL under the new No Fault stand down policy until the completion of the current matter before the Court.
“We accept this decision as part of the NRL’s drive to significantly uplift player behaviour and the overall image of the game on and off the field,’’ said Sea Eagles CEO Lyall Gorman.
“Equally Dylan’s welfare is paramount to us and we will continue to provide full support to him and his family.
“Naturally we are disappointed to lose Dylan from our playing squad.
“In discussions with the NRL earlier this morning, the Club has been advised that a future application for salary cap relief as a result of this stand down will be looked upon favourably.
“Hopefully this matter will be finalised at the next scheduled hearing date on Friday, May 10
“Our Club will continue to remain fully focussed on delivering the strongest possible performance on and off the field for our Members, fans and corporate family for the 2019 season.”
