As a student Walker worked at the MCG as a maintenance man and scoreboard operator and spent winter playing football and summer cricket.

He missed the first three weeks of 1970 while recovering from shoulder and groin injuries, but recovered to play 19 games for the year.

Eventually Walker's summer pursuits won out and he made his test debut in 1972, shortly after giving up his football career. Melbourne retained him on their senior list in 1973 but couldn't entice him back to play.

He went on to play 38 tests and 29 one day matches for Australia before moving into the media and becoming a successful author.
