Warrington Wolves boss Steve Price returned to Australia after four years at Halliwell Jones Stadium, and hooker Danny Walker had his say.
Number nine was brought to Warrington in 2019 after Widnes Vikings’ relegation from the Super League in 2018 and has since established himself as one of the in-form prostitutes in the UK.
And, Walker is grateful for Price and his influence, even though it took a while for the two to be on the same page: “Pricey is a really good guy, not just in training but also in training. off the pitch it’s always just a call away if you ever need anything, ”Walker told the Rugby League Review Podcast.
“At the same time with any manager you have ups and downs and disagreements and we did, but with Pricey he definitely helped my game improve.
“In the first 18 months it was a bit slow on my behalf which was due to a few issues off the pitch – I never really helped myself.
“I didn’t have a lot of playing time and couldn’t show what I could do – it was frustrating at first.”
Walker spoke about how his entry into the Wire team just before the lockdown helped advance his career.
“Right before last year’s lockdown he (Steve Price) was giving me more games and more minutes and I hope I gave him confidence to show what I could do, it took me a lot of time to get there. “
