Former representative halves Greg Alexander and Matthew Johns believe South Sydney livewire Cody Walker is currently the best player in the NRL after a massive start to the 2019 Telstra Premiership.
Walker is currently battling incumbent James Maloney and Luke Keary for the New South Wales five-eigth position.
“I have Walker at No.1 purely on his contribution every week,” Johns told The Daily Telegraph.
“In an age when structure is the norm, his reactive style is completely bamboozling defenders.”
Alexander, a Blues selector, agreed with Johns’ sentiments in the same story.
“Walker has been in sublime form. He has either scored or set up 16 tries for South Sydney this year, more than the combined total tries for some NRL clubs.”
