The rugby league has not seen the last of Corey Norman with the at times troubled half signing with Toulouse Olympique for the remainder of 2022. 

Norman, who had a career marred by several off-field dramas, could have been a genuine star.

Though after a rough few seasons with the St George Illawarra Dragons, Norman made the decision to retire at just 31.

But he is back in the rugby league landscape with Toulouse and Norman is excited to have that chance once again.

“I can’t wait to join the club and meet the whole team, coaches, and supporters,” Norman said.

“This represents a good opportunity and at the same time a challenge for me. I also look forward to acquiring the learning that this new beginning will bring me.”

Bernard Sarrazain, the president of Toulouse, knows that a signing like Corey at this point in the season is a massive boost for them.

“Corey’s arrival in the squad is excellent news for the club at this stage of the season,” Sarrazin said.

“He has the ideal profile since he can occupy two positions that we were looking for, halfback and fullback.

“His extensive high-level experience, his talent, and his leadership will be major assets for the team.

“I am happy that Corey has agreed to trust us and I can’t wait to see him wear the colors of the TO.”
