Exclusive: Warrington Wolves hooker Danny Walker in future admission

Danny Walker has been somewhat of a revelation since moving to the Warrington Wolves from neighbours Widnes Vikings.

The wily hooker made the move on a three-year contract ahead of the 2019 Super League season, but signed a new one-year deal last season to take his stay at the Halliwell Jones to four years.

Those three years were all spent under former Wolves boss Steve Price, but Walker admits that change under new head coach Daryl Powell could be good for the club after they failed to win a trophy since the 2019 Challenge Cup Final – a game which the 23-year-old did not play in.

“I think the change is good; you’ve got to have change as much a good job as Pricey (Steve Price) did at Warrington he didn’t get the results he needed at the back end of the year,” Walker told Serious About Rugby League.

“It’s the players’ fault too, but there’s a lot of changes this year with players and the coaching staff.

“We’ve been in pre-season for two weeks and the lads have all got really stuck in and bought into what Daryl (Powell) has been saying.”

For Walker, however, 2022 will be the last year of his contract after initially signing just a one-year deal, but he cited Powell’s superb management of Paul McShane as an example of why the 23-year-old is excited and not too worried about the future.

“I’ve not really thought about that, I was in the last year of my contract year last year and I signed a one year extension and that was me wanting to ty it out under Daryl Powell.

“The stuff he’s done with Paul McShane under Cas, it’s pretty incredible to be fair.

“If I can get to the levels that he has then I’ll be extremely happy.”
