Will Walker Biography

Thursday, 2 September 2021
North Melbourne delists Taylor Garner, Dom Tyson, Will Walker and Connor Menadue.
Saturday, 14 December 2019
Will Walker continues his rehabilitation from a long-term knee injury, sustained when he landed awkwardly flying for a mark against Adelaide.

The initial prognosis was he would be ready for the start of pre-season training. It was a prognosis that, In hindsight, that was far too optimistic.

Walker progressed more slowly than expected on the AlterG anti-gravity treadmill but post-Christmas he started over-the-ground running and increased up to 4km a session.

Walker, for his part, felt soreness for "probably one or two sessions" before he told the Roos' medical staff, and he says now what eventuated was "no single person's fault".

A subsequent check-up provided the bad news: he had developed a serious stress reaction in his tibia and was back to square one, only weeks out from round one.

Walker has since used this time to get stronger in the gym, adding about 3kg of muscle while completing his level-two coaching accreditation with a handful of other Kangaroos, including practical experience with his local club Hampton Rovers' under-19 side.

"I haven't had any knee or tibia soreness for probably a month, which is the first time since I've done the knee that I haven't been sore, which is really good," Walker said about his current status.

"We're getting scans every six weeks and the last two we've had have been very positive.

"I wouldn't say I'm 100 per cent in the clear, because I haven't started playing games yet, but I feel really good with my body and my knee's feeling very strong and my leg's feeling great."

Will Walker is expected to be fit for the first day of pre-season as he begins his rehabilitation from a PCL injury suffered against the Crows at Adelaide Oval.

"My plan is to be all systems go by day one of pre-season," Walker said.

"Not having surgery, it takes about four to six weeks off your recovery time and obviously there won't be much scarring going on in the joint, so it's quite good."

Friday, 3 August 2018
Fresh from his AFL debut against West Coast, Will Walker signs a one-year contract extension with North Melbourne to remain at the club in 2020.

"The club approached my manager and he told me and I was stoked and the first thing I said was, 'yep sign me up'," Walker said.

"I like being around the boys and I'm super excited, and I can't wait to get stuck in for another two years."

Sunday, 29 July 2018
Will Walker makes his AFL debut for North Melbourne at Blundstone Arena with 11 disposals (6 kicks and 5 handballs), 4 marks and 4 tackles in a 40-point win over West Coast.
Thursday, 26 July 2018
Draftee Will Walker will make his debut for North Melbourne this week against the Eagles at Blundstone Arena.

"Will has been in great form in the VFL over a long period of time," North Melbourne coach Brad Scott said.
