Bulldogs winger to depart after signing with Widnes

Corey Thompson

A late bloomer in the world of rugby league, Corey Thompson impressed many fans with some of his performances in the last couple of years.

Though with the strength of the Canterbury Bulldogs side, opportunity is often rife and so, the pacey winger has opted to search for greener pastures and seek out a new adventure.

He has found that new adventure in the form of the Super League, signing with the Widnes Vikings on a 2-year deal.

Widnes coach Denis Betts is pleased to have Thompson at the club and knows that his time at the Bulldogs will serve him well moving forward.

“He’s played for a fantastic organisation throughout his career, he’s a proven try-scorer and was scoring tries regularly in the NRL,” said Betts.

“He’s got some utility value about him as well. He’s played mainly as a winger but he can also play in the halves or at fullback.”

To date, since making his debut in 2014, Thompson has played in 35 NRL games and scored 15 tries.

He was also a part of the Bulldogs 2014 grand final side.
