In this week's episode of Roosters Radio, we sit and talk with rising star Sam Walker.
Sam talks to us about his journey to the NRL, the influence his Rugby League family has had on his style of play and what he has learnt about his game since making his debut in first grade.
We chat about the recent relocation to QLD, how he found adapting to Sydney, and what it's like tackling the biggest forwards in the NRL each and every week!

Walker touched on how his family and the Roosters have influenced him in backing his unique playing style as he etches himself into the NRL.
"The style of footy that I've sort of grown up playing with my dad and my uncle coaching at Ipswich, I've lived and breathed for ten or so years," he said.
"Coming down to Sydney and when I first met Robbo (Trent Robinson) and the people at the Roosters, one of the big reasons why I wanted to come to this Club was the opportunity to get to express myself, and to be allowed to do that is pretty unique in the NRL.
"Being able to come down here and not have to change my style of football too much has been huge this year. I've actually grown up playing that sort of backyard footy style and I bring that into the NRL and I am really enjoying it."
