Without question, one of the form forwards for the Canberra Raiders in 2023 was Corey Horsburgh and he has been given his just rewards with a long-term extension.
Horsburgh’s new deal at the Raiders will be until the end of the 2027, in a year where the man nicknamed ‘Big Red’ produced stellar stats and a nice punch through the middle.
His form was so good that he was given a chance to play for Queensland in game 3 of the recent series.
Horsburgh is excited to stay at the Raiders and hopes the team can have some successes in the next few seasons.
“I’m really happy to be remaining in Canberra and re-signing with the Raiders, the club that has given me the opportunity to play NRL and this year Origin,” Horsburgh said.
“I want to keep building and improving my game and I’m really excited about staying with the Raiders and continuing to become a better player and help this club achieve success.”
Knowing how key he was to the forward pack alongside Josh Papalii and Joseph Tapine, Raiders NRL Recruitment Manager Joel Carbone said keeping the forward on board was crucial.
“Corey has continued to improve his game and this season he’s been able to take his game to the next level and become an Origin player,” Carbone said.
“Having Corey re-sign with the club long-term allows us to continue to create some stability and consistency in our forward pack and he will continue to be a big part of the team into the future.”
“Corey has developed into a representative player here at the Canberra Raiders and we know he still has a lot of improvement in his game; we expect to see the best of his talent over the next four years.”
