Corey Thompson to depart Wests Tigers

Corey Thompson will depart Wests Tigers effective immediately after agreeing to a long-term deal with another NRL club.

Thompson joined Wests Tigers from Widnes Vikings in Super League ahead of the 2018 season and went on to score nine tries in 20 games for the club that year.

Playing primarily on the wing, the Queensland-born Thompson would go on to play 22 games the following year and featured in the opening two games this season prior to the competition being temporarily suspended in March.

The 30-year-old will depart Wests Tigers having scored 19 tries in 44 games, and paid credit to the club, its staff and fans during his time in Wests Tigers colours.

“I wanted to say thank you to all the Wests Tigers Members and fans for all the support and faith you’ve shown in me,” Thompson said.

“To the club, I wanted to say thank you for giving me the opportunity to come back from England and I’ve loved every second running out there and representing Wests Tigers. I wish the team nothing but success this year and thank you for everything.”

Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe wished Thompson and his family all the best in the future.

“On behalf of all at Wests Tigers, I’d like to thank Corey for his professionalism and commitment to the club over the past two-and-a-half years,” Pascoe said.

“Corey has always carried himself tremendously well on and off the field and has been a great example of the core values that this club is known by.

“The chance for him to head home to Queensland for the first time in his career on a long-term deal is a valuable opportunity for him and his family. I’d like to thank him for his service to Wests Tigers and we wish both he and his partner Sarah all the best in the future.”
