South Sydney five-eighth Cody Walker has told media outlets that he is not motivated by money, rejecting claims that his NRL future will go to the highest bidder.

A star for the Bunnies this year, Walker will have a host of sides, likely to be led by the Gold Coast Titans, hampering for his signature when he hits the market on November first.

Reports suggest that Souths will be unable to keep the talented No. 6 within their budget, however, Walker said that cash alone will not determine his final decision.

“I don’t know how to put it but … (while) the opportunity to set my family up is what I want, money doesn’t motivate me.” Walker told the Daily Telegraph.

“Obviously I’m very comfortable with my family here at Souths. I love the place, love the club, love the area. We’ll see how things go in the next couple of weeks.

“When the time comes to make a decision I’ll make one.

“Right now, I just want to play my best footy and leave all that other stuff up to my manager. Which I know sounds clichéd, but it’s true.”

Walker begins his finals campaign with the Bunnies this weekend when they take on arch-rivals Sydney Roosters on Friday night.


  1. What about under the table payments or TPD’s set up solely by a player manager. Are they a priority?
    If so, the French Dressed Chickens want to talk to you! 🇫🇷

  2. No real need for Potsie from Happy Days to reply. I just thought Le Coq may be interested in buying yet another half . As they’ve been collecting them all year. Croft will probably be for sale as well. Maybe they’d like to buy two more? It wouldn’t worry their cap, as there’s always plenty more cap space at the French Dressed Chickens! 🇫🇷
