Biography

Walgett winger, a former Australian Schoolboy rep in 1981, played with Easts and Norths before enjoying a long career with the Dragons. Walford was the season's leading point-scorer in 1989 (146pts - 13t, 47g) and made his debut for Country Origin that year. He was selected for one State of Origin match in 1990 but further rep honours did not eventuate (Walford was one of four senior players on the Aboriginal tour of Tonga for the Pacific Cup competition in 1990). In 1992 he overcame a poor defensive game in the semi-final to be one of St George's best players in the win over I’warra in the final. Walford was a try-scorer in the club’s 28-8 grand final loss to Brisbane and following St George's 14-6 defeat by the Broncos in 1993, he went on to top 100 tries and 200 first grade games before his retirement in 1996.
