She was treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance Paramedics.

Walker was arrested at the scene by police and taken to Manly Police Station where he was charged with common assault (DV) and assault occasioning actual bodily harm (DV).

He was granted conditional bail to appear at Manly Local Court on Tuesday 11 December.

At a press conference on Friday morning, Manly Sea Eagles boss Lyall Gorman said the club was “greatly disappointed” by the allegations and confirmed they were now focused on looking after the welfare of Dylan’s partner and young baby.

“We express great disappointment on behalf of our club,” he told reporters.

“The allegations around domestic violence are totally foreign to anything we stand for – to our culture, to our values, as of course to the game of Rugby League holistically.

“We all know they have incredibly strong views around domestic violence of any sort, particularly in relation to females.”
