Rugby League: Anthony Walker joins Hornets as a development coach
Date published: 27 November 2017
Anthony Walker has joined Rochdale Hornets as a development coach.
The former St Helens, Wakefield Trinity, Hornets, Whitehaven, Dewsbury Rams and Wales forward has been forced to hang up his boots due to an abnormality on his brain.
It was a medical condition which meant Walker should never have taken part in contact sports, and after a nasty collision in Hornets' win over Swinton Lions in July, CT scans revealed a bleed on the brain.
It was a traumatic experience for the loose forward who was in fine form, however just one day before he was due to head to the World Cup he received heart-breaking news.
