    You cant really judge Walker as he hasnt really been given the consistent chance like Barba.

    Give him the chance and he will become the next barba.

    Does he have a good kicking or passing game?

    Barba is a smart/ resourceful player he showed us that last night, he reminds me of a young mat rogers.

    Walker has nothing on Barba, he might have the speed though.
    Oh yeah I agree with most of what you said, if he was a more complete player he would be in 1st grade.

    When I said "make ben look like a school kid" I was referring to their ability as a running fullback. Shannons freakishness far exceeds Barbas. Shannon would beat Barba by at least 7 mtrs over 100m, he would kill him for speed

    Barba is agile and quick off the mark, but has nothing by comparison over the 100m. Barba only posted 11.45s in the Gatorade Bolt - and that was on a running track with starting blocks. High school kids were posting those times years ago, bare-footed on the grass.

    Walker would make Barba look silly in a 100m sprint, no contest at all.

    This is the season we could trial Walker consistently ... he hasn't helped by getting suspended but there is still plenty of time.

    Barba has shown a lot more dedication than either of his cousins Aaron and Rodney although they were just as talented ... my point being that talent alone isn't enough and while there is no doubt that Walker has the talent, does he have the steel?

    Will Walker be with titans for much longer if he cant prove himself. I mean we have Zillman at fullback, Can't see him getting ahead of Zillman unless he works on his ability to catch the high ball. What does everyone think about shannon walker staying with the titans much longer. I mean he wouldn't be cheap depth as i'm sure there will be a few clubs that will put an offer in on him.

    I don't think we'll retain him to be honest. His best shot was probably if Zilly made the 6 his own but considering he's moved back to fullback and we've signed a specialist 5/8, I don't think Walker will get a run, at fullback at least.
