Former Wakefield Trinity fullback Alex Walker has made the decision to step away from rugby league – at least for the time being.
Walker, who burst onto the scene with the London Broncos was once talked about by much of the Super League fraternity, with his performances for London in the 2018 Championship season earning him rave reviews.
The wily fullback continued to perform for the capital club in 2019, as London were relegated by the skin of their teeth on the final day, with points difference eventually sending the Broncos down.
With their relegation confirmed, the fullback left for pastures new at Wakefield in 2020, but he told Serious About Rugby League just how tough that transition was, especially with him having to move from his home in Harlow to West Yorkshire.
“My time at Wakefield was a massive learning experience,” Walker told Serious About Rugby League.
“Having to deal with injuries for the first time, being away from home and being in some poor form was tough.
“Then, I was very grateful for some game time at the end of the season when I went to Featherstone.”
Walker had been on trial with the Halifax Panthers before Christmas who were, at the time, ‘considering their options’ going forward.
However, nothing has since come of that and the fullback recently told Serious About Rugby League that there has been “no movement” and now he has made the decision to move into property to become a mortgage advisor.
Walker posted on his Instagram: “Hi everyone, I have recently started as an Advisor for @greenandgreenmortgages if anyone has any questions or queries regarding mortgages or protection please get in touch. Also any modelling agencies out there please see pic 3.”
