NRL Star's Sister Bailed After Man's Death

Jade Walker, the sister of NRL star Dylan Walker, has been granted bail after facing court over the manslaughter of her 51-year-old partner in Sydney.

Walker was arrested after Gilbert Caetano was found with head injuries at a Brighton Le Sands home on May 20.

Emergency services were unable to revive him.

Walker appeared before Sutherland Local Court on Monday, charged with manslaughter and entering a dwelling with intent.

She was released on strict bail conditions, including staying away from international airports, abiding by a 10pm curfew, refraining from alcohol and drugs, and regular reporting to a police station.

Mr Caetano's friends posted pictures of the man, described by his daughter in media reports as a "big kid at heart".

"Rip Gil, may God be with you bro," one friend wrote.

"This is unreal, RIP Gilly," another said.

Walker's brother Dylan plays for the Manly Sea Eagles' NRL team.

The Sea Eagles said they were supporting the Australian and NSW Origin representative player and his family.

"Given the serious nature of the charges before the court and the need to let due legal process unfold, neither Dylan or the club will be making any further public comment," the club said in a statement last week.

Walker, who is transgender, is expected before the same court again on July 16.
