Yaama and welcome to our podcast “A Cuppa and a Yarn” with NRL star, five-eighth Cody Walker. In this episode, Cody talks us through his journey to the top, playing at clubs right along the eastern seaboard. The Yuin Bundjalung man tells Michelle Aleksandrovics-Lovegrove about leaving Casino in NSW and heading for the Gold Coast for work, before playing for the Titans’ NYC team. From there it was the Penrith Panthers NSW Cup team, Eastern Suburbs Tigers in the Queensland Cup, and a stint with Melbourne Storm before joining South Sydney Rabbitohs in 2015.
This episode was recorded live in front of an audience at the NSW Aboriginal Land Council’s Speaker’s Tent at the 49th annual Koori Knockout at the Central Coast Regional Sporting and Recreation Complex. Cody also answers questions from the audience about playing under the legendary Wayne Bennett, and how his playing hit new highs once he became a proud father to two sons.
