Dylan Walker free to play in round one as hearing date set for alleged pizza shop assault

Manly chief executive Steve Humphries has given Dylan Walker the green light to play in round one after allegedly assaulting two pizza shop workers in Sydney's northern beaches last year.

The Manly star's case was back in Downing Centre Local Court on Wednesday where lawyer Jessica Kavvalos requested a two-day hearing with up to 20 witnesses expected to testify in the case. The request was granted with Walker's case to be heard from May 14-17.

It is alleged Walker then became aggressive and assaulted two men from the pizza shop after they confronted the player before he punched one of them in the face.

Walker was arrested nearby a short time later and was taken to Manly Police Station.

According to court documents, Walker is not allowed to contact the witnesses as part of his bail conditions. He is also not allowed to be intoxicated while in a public place, and is not able to go within 50 metres of the Little Italy pizzeria.
