    Dragons Table 3-year contract Offer to Cody Walker
    The St George Illawarra Dragons are on the hunt for a replacement for Josh Dugan and believe Cody Walker is their man.

    Walker, 27, one of the most exciting play-makers in the game today is believed to be on a contract worth between $150,000 – $200,000 per season and has given the Rabbithos 48hrs to offer him a pay-rise or he will demand an immediate release from his current contract.

    [​IMG]

    Walker knocked back a offer from the Brisbane Broncos at the end of last season, said to be around $600,000 per season, as he wanted to stay loyal to the club that gave him a his chance in the NRL.

    The Rabbitohs were expected to offer the 27-year a pay rise this season that would keep the exciting play-maker at the club long-term.

    That pay-rise is yet to have come and Cody Walker’s ultimatum to the Rabbitohs, now has the St George Illawarra Dragons ready to swoop. The Dragons are believed to have tabled an offer that could see Walker replace departing fullback Josh Dugan.


    It is understood that the Dragons have offered Walker a 3-year deal worth to be around $1.85 million and it is believed to have Walker tempted to jump ship.

    I see where Hopoate from the grubs has not received any offer for a contract ectension.
    He has said that he will play Sunday's next season. Might be worth considering

    Love to have him on board , Cody for Dugan is IMO an upgrade . Then how do the likes of Field , Dufty be feeling not to be given a chance to play at fullback more so Dufty . Anyway thats how this game is going , teams cant wait for a player to develop into a position .

    The 5th tackle should be banned from this page as a source.

    Unfortunately that is the game today, you buy proven players, Cody Walker is gun player now, Dufty could potentially be a better player, but the window of opportunity to win comps is narrow, Cronulla bought Ennis, Maloney and Barba and bang finally they win a comp.
    If we did get Cody somehow keeping field and Dufty in our squad would be a fantastic result.

    Yes but I think it more the case that some of these juniors are told or they think that they are ready before they really are ready. In the case of Dufty and Field there is no evidence to suggest they are not ready. They are both playing well in reserve grade against men.

    I'm sure Mary has erred in not selecting either Mann/Field/Dufty at fullback during the absence of Dugan.

    Bingo.

    As if the Broncos offered him 600k per year and he turned it down for 200k per year. Absolute junk no. 1.

    And no club is even allowed to table an offer to Walker yet as he's under contract until the end of 2018 (with a player option for 2019). Absolute junk no. 2.

    5th tackle is the worst form of clickbait crap.

    P.S. Yes I'm a Roosters fan in the Dragons forum. Don't hold it against me!

    5th tackle did predict Dugan to Bulldogs! take it as you wish,

    I know for a fact we are looking at Johnston , Walker would be cool as he plays multiple positions and seems like a nice guy ..

    Who ever we sign must be able to play other position than FB so to allow the potential of a duty and Field to come through if they develop a little quicker than expected...

    Sounds about right.We let go a current rep fullback & then proceed to sign up players who are not even fullbacks for pretty good coin.:confused:
