Walker re-signs for two seasons

Sydney Roosters winger Chris Walker has re-signed with the premiers for the next two National Rugby League seasons.

Walker is understood to have agreed to a contract heavily weighted towards the second season, with the salary cap biting the club tight next year. The chunky centre/winger joined the Roosters mid-season after walking out on a lucrative three-year deal South Sydney and has scored nine tries in his 17 appearances.

Coach Ricky Stuart says Walker has trained hard since joining the club.
