Before making his Super League debut in 2o20, Corey Hall had already been at a number of different clubs.
The young centre started his academy career at Wakefield Trinity, moved to Wigan Warriors prior to joining Leeds Rhinos ahead of 2020.
He went on to debut alongside the likes of Liam Tindall against Catalans Dragons in 2020 during the pandemic as Richard Agar’s side focused on chasing Challenge Cup success resting players for the mid-week games in Super League.
Hall would play a few more games in 2021 for the Rhinos as they struggled with injuries but going into 2022 would leave the club for Wakefield Trinity.
This came after he was again given the number 28 shirt at Leeds ahead of the new season before a bit of a surprise saw him leave the club taking on the number 30 shirt at Wakefield prior to playing a key role at the club throughout last season.
He has subsequently been rewarded with a huge promotion in terms of his squad number for 2023.
He has moved up a massive 27 places to take on the number three shirt next year which was vacated by the now retired Bill Tupou.
It is interesting to see Hall rewarded in this way a day after another young ex-Leeds centre’s move to Castleford Tigers was confirmed in the shape of Jack Broadbent.
Both were tipped to be the future of the centre positions at Headingley and both have moved on with Nene MacDonald taking over at centre after a move from Leigh Leopards.
