Very interesting? I thought he was just an Academy prospect?
Depends a bit on the individual how much contact the academy kids have with the club. The best come to Honebush to train for a week. If their playing TAC cup that might be it.

Walker played NEAFL which meant he would have been training with Phil Davis. Not sure if all clubs do but our guys train together except for the captains runs.
So yeah very likely Davis, who would know him best.

Thx for the reply, appreciate it. Love how our club is so determined to remain competitive, confirmed by posts like yours, despite a dearth of early picks for quite a while now.
