It's been an incredible journey for Cody Walker in the last five years considering he only just came into first-grade at the start of the 2016 season.
In the past five seasons, Walker has recorded 98 games for the South Sydney Rabbitohs, earned representative honours with the Brydens Lawyers NSW Blues and Prime Minister's XIII, and captained the Indigenous All Stars.
His performances in recent years have shown that he is one the most dynamic five-eighths in Rugby League, producing 44 tries, 62 try-assists, 66 line-breaks, 69 line-break assists and 341 tackle-breaks.
His rise to prominence came in the 2015 season, however, when he starred for the North Sydney Bears in the NSW Cup with 17 tries, 17 try-assists, 17 line-breaks, 17 line-break assists and 58 tackle-breaks in just 15 appearances.
It was just 12 months after he carved up the Queensland Cup competition for the Easts Tigers, recording 18 tries, 18 line-breaks, and 96 tackle-breaks in just 18 games.
He is one of the best players to graduate from the NSWRL's premier competition in recent years and will be crucial in the Rabbitohs' quest for a 22nd premiership in 2020.
