South's speedster Walker says best is yet to come

SYDNEY - South Sydney speedster Dylan Walker might be in the midst of a breakout season but in an ominous warning for his NRL rivals, he says he is not yet back to his best.

Walker enjoyed a superb rookie year in 2013 and has continued improving at the same exponential rate this season.

In 15 matches, the 19-year-old has terrorised opponents with blinding speed, scoring nine tries and recording 10 line breaks.

He got a taste of representative football for NSW City in May and had his name thrown about by NSW selectors after Blues centre Josh Morris was ruled out of State of Origin II, only to be rubbed out himself because of a thumb injury.

Walker missed three matches due to the injury and said he was still getting back to his best.

"That injury was a setback and when you come back from injury you always find it hard to get back into the rhythm of things and get your preparation right," he said.

"I'm just sticking to the process and sticking to training. That was a big one for me, keep my fitness up and I've done a lot of speed work and done all I possibly could."

Walker has maintained his good form despite having an affray charge hanging over his head this year.
