Easts Tigers five-eighth Cody Walker is one step closer to fulfilling the childhood dream after agreeing to a one-year deal with the Melbourne Storm earlier this week.

“(Playing NRL) has always been my goal since I can remember. Hopefully through hard work over the pre-season I can get there,” he says.

“Melbourne is the best club in the competition and I see a real opportunity there to play first grade.”

The inking of a National Rugby League contract is just reward for rich vein of form that has seen the 23-year-old claim the 2013 Courier Mail Best and Fairest Award and finish first on the Intrust Super Cup point scoring table at the completion of the regular season.
