Nick Kyrgios and Tex Walker return for round two

He’d done it: Nick Kyrgios had handled the trolling of Adelaide Crows captain Taylor Walker with aplomb and was sitting pretty on top of the moral high ground.

But it proved to be a slippery slope and in one fell tweet he stumbled.

After Twitter tempers flared on Wednesday, Kyrgios and Walker were back for the rematch on Thursday – the Mohawk up against the reformed Mullet.

It looks like the Mohawk is still ahead on points, but it’s hard to tell which way the judges will finally sway.

But before the Thriller from Twitter kicked off again, it appeared everything had ended so peacefully until a cheeky Walker posted a video of himself taking a spectacular mark against the Gold Coast Suns.

“@NickKyrgios here is for future reference buddy – just remember this next time you spit the dummy #galoot,” Walker tweeted. @NickKyrgios here is for future reference buddy – just remember this next time you spit the dummy #galoothttp://t上海龙凤论坛/s08AnXNq5D— Tex Walker (@texwalker13) October 15, 2015

It didn’t take Kyrgios long to return serve, which was when he lost the high ground – if only he’d heeded Lord Humungus’s wise words from Mad Max 2, “Just walk away”.

“@texwalker13 the fact that you just posted a highlight of yourself makes me think you’re a bigger idiot than I thought,” Kyrgios replied. @texwalker13 the fact that you just posted a highlight of yourself makes me think you’re a bigger idiot than I thought.— Nicholas Kyrgios (@NickKyrgios) October 15, 2015

It had all appeared to end amicably on Wednesday night, when Kyrgios had wished both Walker and former Crows teammate Patrick Dangerfield all the best for their careers. @dangerfield32 I wish the best for you both in your careers.

The storm in a Twitter cup had kicked off on Wednesday morning with Walker initially having a crack at Kyrgios.

“When is this absolute Galoot going to learn. What a dead set flog!! Just suspend the peanut!!” Walker tweeted. When is this absolute Galoot going to learn. What a dead set flog!! Just suspend the peanut!! http://t上海龙凤论坛/rULDU8SPPz— Tex Walker (@texwalker13) October 13, 2015

Kyrgios fired a jab back, tweeting he didn’t know who Walker was, which was when Dangerfield got involved to the young Canberran some background. I don’t even know who Tex walker is lol— Nicholas Kyrgios (@NickKyrgios) October 14, 2015

Stay tuned for round three.
