Jack Walker has been pictured training with the Leeds Rhinos in full contact as he nears his return from a horrific 18 months of injury.
After suffering a foot injury back in March that was initially set to rule him out until the end of the season, Walker has made incredible progress which could see the fullback return to action quicker than expected.
Walker burst onto the scene as a 17-year-old in 2017 scoring a hat-trick in the Challenge Cup against Doncaster alongside the likes of Danny McGuire and Rob Burrow. Over the course of 2017 he battled it out with Ashton Golding for the fullback spot.
Eventually, he secured the fullback spot before helping Leeds to Old Trafford where victory made him the youngest ever Grand Final winner.
He kicked on since then, establishing himself as one of the most exciting youngsters in the game only to be stifled by injury.
However, his injury nightmare looks to be behind him as he looked well in shape for what would be a sensational return on Friday night against St Helens.
