Ex-St Helens boss heaps praise on ex-Leeds Rhinos man’s son as former Catalans Dragons boss also receives praise

Daniel Anderson is one of the best coaches to grace Super League.

In his first full season in the competition, he guided St Helens to the treble in 2006. In total he won nine trophies in three and a half seasons which is a truly impressive record and it could have been much more if not for a star-studded Leeds Rhinos side.

Speaking of the Rhinos, one of their former players’ sons has had a big involvement with Anderson recently.

The former Saints boss is of course part of the recruitment team at Sydney Roosters and he was vital in tying down Sam Walker, son of Ben Walker, until the end of 2025.

Speaking after this, he had huge praise for the young halfback:

“Sam is an impressive young man and a keen student of the game who brings energy to everything he does,” Anderson said.

“There’s a terrific connection between him and the players around him and it’s great news that he will continue to play his important role here at the Roosters in the coming years.”

Meanwhile, Walker himself had praise for another former Super League coach in the shape of ex-Catalans Dragons boss Trent Robinson.

“The Roosters have been awesome for me and I’m grateful every day to be part of this great club,” Walker said.

“I love the Roosters club and the people in it so I’m stoked to extend my time here. From Trent Robinson and the coaches to the squad around me, I’m learning so much and I know this is where I’ll play my best footy.”
