The Sharks defeated the Rabbitohs 21-20 in a golden point thriller with Nicho Hynes slotting the matchwinning field goal after a few failed attempts from Latrell Mitchell Matt Moylan.

Afterwards Walker went down the line, shaking hands with Nicho Hynes before locking eyes with McInnes and then shoving him away as McInnes attempted to shake his hand.
McInnes turned back as Walker continued down the line and appeared to follow after him.
The pair played together at the Rabbitohs before McInnes joined the Dragons in 2017.
Walker set up a try, got four tackle busts, two offloads and ran for 73 meters but overall it was a night to forget for the Bunnies’ star five-eighth as Sharks players continued to get under his skin.
The McInnes moment comes six weeks after Walker’s temperament was labeled a “massive problem” for the Rabbitohs given rivals are now purposely trying to set him off.
Dragons prop Aaron Woods revealed after their 32-12 win over the Rabbitohs in Round 15 that trying to get under Walker’s skin was a part of their game plan.
“If we can get him off his game a little bit, try to frustrate him and pressure him we know he does get a little bit angry,” he told Triple M at the time.
“The fuse is pretty short with him and you can get him off the game. That was part of it [the game plan].”
