Sam Walker in staggering $1.8 million development at Roosters amid NRL links to Broncos after the…

The Roosters could have a fight on their hands to keep hold of Sam Walker, with the Brisbane Broncos emerging as a potential suitor for the halfback. The Roosters have reportedly tabled a a two-year extension to their gun No.7 that’s said to be worth around $1.8 million or $900,000 per season.

But the Broncos could see Walker as a natural successor to veteran half Adam Reynolds, who is contracted to Brisbane until the end of the 2025 NRL season. Walker’s current deal with the Roosters also runs until the end of next year, meaning he will be a free agent come November 1 and thus able to negotiate with rival clubs for the 2026 season onwards – unless he locks something down with the Roosters before then.

Walker has established himself as one of the most highly sought after No.7s after a stunning return to form in 2024, having been dropped from the Roosters’ first grade side last season before returning for their run to the NRL semi-finals. Walker is from Queensland and has friends and family there, having grown up as a boyhood Broncos fan. The idea of a move back to Brisbane would surely be tempting for the 22-year-old.
