Corey Norman joins St George Illawarra

Parramatta Eels half-back Corey Norman has joined St George Illawarra on a three-year deal.

The 27-year-old has played 169 NRL games to date during time spent at Brisbane Broncos and Parramatta.

Several Super League clubs were linked with Norman earlier in the off-season, but he has decided to stay in the NRL and sign for the Dragons.

On his transfer, Norman said: “It’s a big day for myself and my family.

“There are some exciting times ahead. The Dragons’ squad at the moment is really good and they are coming off a good year, so I’m really looking forward to playing with the boys and spending plenty of good seasons here.”

Dragons’ director of rugby league pathways and list management, Ian Millward, commented: “Corey is a player who will entertain all members and fans with his ability in attack.

“He is a player who we see will take us to the next level with the way he plays the game.

“When we make these decisions, it’s not always about pure recruitment. We talk to our senior players, we speak to our coach. Overall, we have been impressed.

“Straight away, there will be speculation around the position he’ll play and that will be up to the coach. We feel Corey as a quality player will give Paul [McGregor] an opportunity to work with some really outstanding talent.”
