“Just Silly”: Legend says Cody Walker should have known better after video goes viralMay 19, 2020
BY STAFF WRITERS
Former Australian and Blues forward Mark Geyer has labeled Cody Walker’s actions in a video that now gone viral online as ‘silly’ with the South Sydney five-eigth facing a suspension and fine for his involvement in the fight.
The video shows Walker, with his back to the camera, charging at another man and kicking him in a supposed attempt to break up a fight involving a family member.
“Silly, just silly – how many times have we told rugby league players on this show that mobile phones these days are like a loaded gun? They’re very dangerous,” Geyer said on Triple M on Monday night.
“You’ve got to be on your guard 24/7 as a rugby league player these days and if you don’t realise that maybe there’s another sport for you.
“I think the irony of this is [the fine] is somewhere around the ransom – I’d say 10, maybe $10,000.”
