Always liked Corey when he was with us. Gave 100% each game even when barely anyone else would. Most memorable moment was against the Roosters to win the game in the dying secs in Rd1 2018.
Underrated player - always gave 100%.
Was a super reliable player. Some always said he was too small but you knew he would play his heart out.
All the best Corey in your next chapter.

Great example of getting the most out of your ability. Always tried his guts out and competed, many times against blokes with far superior skill and physical attributes.
Best of luck to him in his life post-footy, was always a favourite in his short stay at WT. Players like him are the foundations you build your whole club around yet WT were happy to let him walk while we signed players with not even half of his work ethic and willingness to always have a crack.

I think Corey may have scored a try in Teddy's first game for the Chooks against us which either won us the game or contributed to a win. Memorable because it was also Teddy's first game for the Chooks against WT and Teddy blew what would have been a match winning try by dropping the ball stone cold with the line wide open.
