We signed Walker as a solution to our five eight problem at the time. It appears this was done on the basis that he had played five eight in junior footy. When we signed him a friend of mine who is a fanatical Souths supporter told me that Manly had made a mistake trying to play him at five eight. I now actually think we didn't help his career playing him out of position.
Not in the early stages but really thought that Walker was a real asset as a 6 especially in 2019 or so , even his kicking game there was well up to par , including some well placed bombs . Hand full in attack , not a bad foil for D C E, adequate enough defence there . injuries and a couple of indiscretions certainly did not help then but couldn 't really see an issue with his open field 13 role also then . Centre role for Manly just not so influential in recent times , probably around 350 k . or just a bit more in his recent Manly role , probably 450- 500 K for a side like the Warriors as a centre again , that 's the way it goes

Anthony Seibold is one Manly Grand final Win away from being an all time Manly Legend

Ironically if Anthony Siebold can replicate Des’ results over the last four years including a top 4 finish in 2021 and a top 6 in 2019 then he would be hailed a hero.

In fact he’ll reach legend status just if we can make the 8
Legendary Status is a Winning Grand Final Contribution feathered friend

Let us never Lower our Legendary clubs Great Benchmark Standards of Excellence

Lower our Great Standards and we Stand for Nothing Great

2nd Best is not a Manly thing

We never got the best out of Walker from 2016 to 2022. I still can’t believe we let gutho go and signed Walker.
