ARU clears the way for Walker




The Australian Rugby Union has this morning officially given clearance for former Wallaby Andrew Walker to make his debut for the Queensland Reds this weekend in the Investec Super 14.

The Australian clearance follows his release by French club Gaelic and the French National Rugby Body, the FFR.

The French rugby authorities sent through the necessary paperwork to the ARU overnight.

Walker, a winger, joined second-division outfit Gaelic last September.

He previously played in the Super 12 competition with the ACT Brumbies before a switch back to Rugby League.

His return to Australia yesterday and clearance today by the ARU means 34 year old Walker can be reunited with his former Brumbies and Wallabies coach Eddie Jones as early as tomorrow.

The Reds are home in Brisbane tomorrow night for the Lions (South Africa).
