Corey Harawira-Naera arrived at Belmore from the Penrith Panthers on a four year contract until the end of 2022. The talented 23-year old, who was born in New Zealand, made his NRL debut for the Panthers in 2017, scoring a try in his first match against Newcastle.
The Kiwi played 46 games, scoring 13 tries over the past two seasons and claimed Penrith's 2017 Rookie of the Year award along the way. During 2018, he made 513 tackles, scored six tries, provided 22 offloads, 42 tackle breaks and had a tackle efficiency of 86.5%.
The addition of Corey to the squad will add both quality and strength to the club's forward pack for next season and beyond.
In 2019 the back-rower impressed in his first season at Belmore, scoring 5 tries, 7 line breaks, 59 offloads, made 673 tackles and averaged 79.5 running metres per game. He made his test debut for New Zealand and was a member of the Kiwis World Nines team.
In April 2020, Corey's contract with the Bulldogs was deregistered by the NRL for breaking the clubs code of conduct.
In July 2020, after a successful appeal with the NRL Appeals Tribunal, Corey asked for a release from his Bulldogs contract to join the Canberra Raiders.
