Kane Cornes’ long-running battle with Adelaide forward Taylor Walker shows no signs of slowing down.

After the announcement of a special charity Twenty20 showdown to raise money for bushfire relief in South Australia, a user on Twitter challenged Cornes and Walker to face off during the match.

Both the Port Adelaide great and ex-Crows captain traded barbs on social media over the weekend.

On Monday, Cornes claimed a victory over Walker.

“He took the bait magnificently,” he told SEN SA Breakfast.

“That was a bit of a joke – he retweeted something that something else said about me.

“I had a bit of a laugh (with my response to Walker) on Twitter but with some jokes, there’s an element of truth to it and there was a bit of that.”

Cornes also revealed Walker sent him a voice message on New Year’s Eve, which included another sledge referring to his short stint as a firefighter.

"These clowns from Broken Hill left their mobile number in full display," he said.

"Most people would let it go but not me though – the first thing I did was returned the call from a private number this time and rang this bloke back.

"Taylor Walker has spent his New Year's Eve thinking about me."
