Both Sunday papers have Andrew Walker seeking a downgrade in his drugs sentence so he can play next year.

Seems as though he wants to play in the UK.

The last time there was a round of stories on him he was cranky with Manly as the rehabilitation he'd been promised supposedly hadn't come through. I presume that's been rectified seeing as he says nothing about it this time and seems to have his head back together.

LOL @ blaming Manly. Why doesn't he go out and seek some rehab?

I don't think he'd be coming back to Brookvale.

He is seeking to play in England or Union. Walks is a sad story of how some one can fall. To say that Manly let him down is just crazy. It comes down to personal responsibility. He should have stayed clean for himself and his family and those who put their faith in him. That doesn't mean he doesn't need help but my understanding is we gave him a lifeline when noone else would. To down grade the penalty is wrong as it lets others know that you can appeal later. The issue of recreational drugs in sport is another question but the bottom line is it is illegal, dangerous and part of the rules of playing.
