Wakefield Trinity’s ex-Leeds Rhinos star Corey Hall makes important off-field move to prepare for life after rugby league

COREY HALL does not just have a bright future ahead of him on the rugby league field.

After starring for Wakefield Trinity in their 2022 Super League season, establishing himself as one of the brightest young centres in the game, Hall is also studying Construction Project Management at Sheffield Hallam University.

With that, Hall is also shadowing Morgan Sindall’s Project Manager – a company which is Trinity’s construction partner during the Belle Vue redevelopment project – a project that has made stunning progress which will see the West Yorkshire club produce a modern facility on one of the oldest venues in Super League.

“I’ve been shadowing a project manager at Morgan Sindall, been on the site and in the offices which fits perfectly alongside my course (construction project management) at University,” Hall told the Wakefield website.

“It’s extremely important to have something behind you for life after Rugby League and this is something that I’m thoroughly enjoying. It’s also good to have an insight into our redevelopment at Trinity which excites me even more. 

“Even though I’m still one of the young lads, I’d advise fellow professionals to do a university degree or have something different in place for when your rugby career is over. With the nature of the sport, it’s always good to have a backup plan.” 

On the field, Hall is determined to kick on from a superb debut season for Trinity in 2022, with the centre keen to stress how different this pre-season has been to the last.

“It’s been going good. This year has been more physically demanding but that’s what’s needed to be in the best shape possible for the start of the season. We’re spending a lot more time on the field, but it gives you the chance to work on small details that you don’t normally get the opportunity to.  

“Everyone is buying into it and we’re all extremely confident going into the start of the season.”
