Canterbury Bulldogs have today confirmed that Corey Allan has been released from his contract at the club effective immediately.
In May of this year, it was reported that several Super League clubs were interested in the fullback and that even a deal could be struck up during the Magic Round in Australia the same weekend that got the ball rolling for Josh McGuire move to Warrington Wolves in 2023.
Not getting in the Bulldogs side, who are looking for a new fullback and are considering a move for both Penrith Panthers star Stephen Crichton and England and Brisbane Broncos star Herbie Farnworth for 2024 so it should come as no surprise.
In a statement on the club’s website, the Bulldog said:
“Corey Allan has been released from the final year of his contract with the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs, effective immediately.
“We thank Corey for his two years of service to the Bulldogs and wish him all the best for the future.”
Having been chased by Super League clubs in the past, this could open the door for him to make the switch to Super League.
Right now the most likely destinations would be Catalans Dragons and the Leigh Leopards who both have quota spots to use.
