  Shannon walker joined the Australian Rugby ranks in August 2011 after an early exit from the NRL’s Gold Coast Titans due to injury.

After missing out on the start of the 2011/12 World Series and missing his much anticipated debut at the inaugural Gold Coast Sevens tournament as a result of injury, Walker got the nod to make his debut in Hong Kong.

Walker went on to play Hong Kong and Tokyo, scoring a double against Samoa to help lead Australia to a Cup final win in Tokyo.

A cousin of NRL player Ken Nagas, Walker is renowned for his electric pace and slippery footwork which is paying dividends on the 2013-14 HSBC World Sevens Series.

Walker is also a member of a large family, with four brothers, four sisters and a daughter of his own.
