Young centre Hall joins Wakefield Trinity

Leeds Rhinos have agreed a transfer fee with Wakefield Trinity that will see 19-year-old centre Corey Hall move to the Mobile Rocket Stadium with immediate effect.

The Sheffield-born centre joined the Rhinos from Wigan at the start of the 2020 season and made four appearances in total for the first team.

Speaking on joining Trinity, Hall said: “I’m very excited to be back where I first started my professional career.

“I really appreciate being given the opportunity to come back and develop as a player under the coaching staff and I look forward to giving 100% in pre-season.”

Trinity Head Coach Willie Poching added: “It’s fantastic that we are able to bring Corey to the club where he first started. To able to attract and recruit such a young and prospective English talent is something we, as a club, are very proud to able to do.

“I’m excited to see him slot into our centre competition and challenge for a spot and I look forward to seeing his development over the next couple of seasons.”

Leeds Rhinos Chief Executive Gary Hetherington said, “Corey leaves with our best wishes. He has been a model young professional in his time at the Rhinos and unfortunately his opportunities have been limited due to the disruptions to the game over the last two years. However, he has always given all his effort in training and we look forward to seeing him continue his development at Trinity.”
