Danny Walker reveals the two clubs he rejected before signing for Warrington Wolves

Warrington Wolves star Danny Walker has made a big reputation for himself since joining the club in 2019.

The 22-year-old played for both Crosfields and Rylands Community Clubs as a junior and has since made 45 appearances for the Wolves since making the move from Widnes Vikings.

“I turned Warrington down when I was 14 and I had offers from Salford, Warrington and Widnes. I went to see all the facilities at all the clubs,” Walker revealed on the Vanilla Vine podcast.

“Widnes made me feel the most wanted, even though I was a Warrington fan I thought it would be best if I went to Widnes. I thought this is where I want to be.

“It was the best decision I ever made, at Widnes it was just brilliant.”

The wily hooker, of course, joined Warrington after Widnes were relegated from Super League at the end of 2018 and all contracts were null and void.

And, Walker believed that it was the best move.

“Warrington offered me again at the under-19s contract but I still didn’t feel like it was the right decision as I feel like I could have just been playing in the reserves.

“No disrespect to the Championship, but I didn’t want to play there.

“I was only a young lad and my career should be only going one way.”
