When you think of Leeds Rhinos halfback there are three names that spring to mind.
Danny McGuire, Rob Burrow and Kevin Sinfield were the three masterminds behind Leeds’ golden generation.
They are not the only the only legendary halfbacks Leeds have had. Before the days of Super League, Leeds had Lewis Jones, John Holmes and Gary Schofield.
Even in the early days of Super League, Leeds had the likes of Iestyn Harris and Ryan Sheridan.
But it is often forgotten that between Harris and the trio in the golden generation there was Ben Walker.
During Walker’s time in Leeds, he had a son Sam Walker who over the last few years has emerged as one of the most promising halfbacks in the NRL.
Tipped to play for Queensland and Australia in the future, the Leeds born halfback was expected to kick on and on but perhaps it was inevitable that the 20-year-old would need to take a step back so he can move forward.
He has recently been dropped to the reserves at Sydney with Joey Manu coming into the halves.
Walker is on a long term deal at the Roosters but reports have emerged that Walker could be on his way out of the club with contact made to The Dolphins probing whether there would be interest.
It is unclear who has made contact, Walker, The Dolphins or the Roosters but it is unlikely that it was the Roosters given his long term deal.
