Ben Walker shapes as one of the replacements for Allan Langer or Kevin Walters when the inevitable day arrives that the two legends retire. Walker is the oldest of the highly talented Walker brothers, and has been gradually getting the taste of first grade.

An undoubtedly talented player, Walker has performed solidly when given a starting opportunity. A solid player with plenty of ability, Walker's responsibility will grow in years to come, and he's certain to rise to the occasion.

Langer's retirement in April 1999 was a godsend for Walker. He graduated from understudy to lead actor and spent the year accustomising himself to the role of first grade halfback. He did it with distinction, playing a number of high quality, match winning games.

Walker's goalkicking has seen him take over from Lockyer as the club's first choice kicker, and he is a vital part of the club's rebuilding in season 2000 and beyond.
