Manly's Dylan Walker has "emphatically" denied involvement in an alleged brawl in Thailand, reports the Daily Telegraph.
Walker and his former Rabbitohs teammate Aaron Gray were reportedly involved in a fight with 14 others at Patong Beach, and the NRL Integrity Unit, as well as their respective clubs, are aware of the incident.
“Dylan told me he did nothing wrong — he had no involvement what-so-ever,” Walker’s manager Wayne Beavis said, reports the Daily Telegraph.
“Dylan was emphatic. He said he was involved in nothing.”
“I haven’t spoken to Aaron and I haven’t even confirmed he was there,” Gray’s manager Steve Gillis said.
“Everything is hearsay and I am sure any investigation will run its course and we will take it from there.”
According to reports, another person involved in the brawl, Sheldon Hepi-Parke, was placed in jail just after the fight, but Walker and Gray were not arrested.
According to his father, Hepi-Parke is acquainted with the NRL players as he went through SG Ball and Harold Matts at the same time as Walker and Gray and played them.
Gray and Walker were involved in a near-fatal prescription drug overdose in September last year, with Walker parting ways with Souths after recovering from the incident.
