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."
Come and face one then and see how you go… if port let you that is!!
