Dylan Walker’s imminent return is the first major blow to the NRL’s new crackdown on player behaviour, with Manly demanding the star centre become available for next weekend’s clash with Cronulla.

Walker was found not guilty of pulling his fiancee Alexandra Ivkovic to the ground by her ponytail following a fight over a PlayStation. Walker was the second player banned under the game’s ‘no-fault' stand down policy and hasn’t been able to play since being charged last December.
The court found it unable to sustain proof of guilt despite numerous witness statements.
The court instead relied on he said she said.
He said he didn't do it.
His girlfriend retracted a lot of her initial statement (probably didn't want to lose her meal ticket) and a lot make retractions so she isn't alone.

The beak said 7 witnesses while good well meaning people were obviously mistaken so.....NOT GUILTY.

For him its back to footy and Manly need him sooner than later.

Manly 30 - 6 Newcastle.

Manly running very well - under the radar. Newcastle has hit the wall.

Manly back-rower Joel Thompson's impressive resurgence under Des Hasler is set to be rewarded with a one-year deal for 2020.

NRL.com understands that the final details of an extension for Thompson are currently being finalised, keeping the veteran forward on the Northern Beaches after he went on the record with his willingness to take a pay cut to stay at the club.

Manly's Jack Gosiewski has inked a new two-year deal as the Sea Eagles resurgence pits him against the South Sydney side that declined to extend his time at Redfern due to a wretched injury run.

Gosiewski confirmed his new contract will keep him in maroon and white until the end of 2021 with NRL.com on Monday.
