Dragons coaching staff are concerned that the pair will clash again in what shapes as a must-win game for the club.
“Walker loves to push the boundaries and the two have history,” a Dragons source told Wide World of Sports.

Surprisingly, Walker went in to bat for Sua in the media this week – perhaps setting the scene for another spicy encounter.
“We’re both that type of player that we like to play aggressive,” Walker told The Sydney Morning Herald.
“He loves to put shots on and I don’t like to be on the end of shots. We had a bit of a laugh after the (Charity Shield) game. That’s where it all stays, I suppose.
“I think he has been a little bit unlucky with the way he tackles. Sometimes it does slide up and it gets him in a little bit of trouble. I thought the one [against the Sharks] was a little bit harsh.”
