Exclusive: Wakefield Trinity man opens up on how move from Leeds Rhinos happened and first year at the club

Corey Hall made his Super League debut in 2020, but by then he had been at three different clubs.

He started at Wakefield Trinity, went to Wigan Warriors before moving to Leeds Rhinos where he made his debut at Headingley against the Catalans Dragons during the pandemic.

However, after a handful of appearances in 2020 and 2021, Hall made the move to Wakefield Trinity in 2022 where he was guaranteed more game time.

It came as a bit of a surprise. Hall had been given the number 28 shirt for the 2022 but the morning after the rumours began, Hall was headed back to Wakefield and Max Simpson took on the number 28 shirt at Leeds.

Speaking exclusively to Serious About Rugby League, Corey Hall revealed just how quick things happened: “One day I turned up to my agents house and then he said there was a chance at signing at Wakefield and I jumped at the chance.”

He also reflected on his time at Belle Vue so far: “I’ve loved my time at Wakefield in the first year.

“Being able to play regular Super League has always been a dream of mine and to be able to live it was a massive bonus to me.”

Hall also explained the impact new Wakefield boss Mark Applegarth has already had on him prior to taking the reigns as Head Coach: “Mark Applegarth have helped me develop by giving me pointers and drills to go away and learn.”
