Episode 55 - Cory Paterson

“I’m super lucky, I debuted with Andrew Johns and Danny Buderus and those type of blokes and then at the Cowboys I had Johnathan Thurston and Matty Bowen. I’m so fortunate to have had the career I’ve had and play with the players I’ve played with and against. You pick things up along the way, how to prepare for matches and training, everyone’s individual but I tried to take as much as I can from the awesome player’s I’ve played with”

My special guest is Cory Paterson. Corey is a professional Rugby League player in the UK for the Toronto Wolfback. He made his debut in 2007 for the Newcastle Knights while he also played in the NRL for the North Queensland Cowboys and the West Tigers. He has represented the Indigenous All Stars while he is undefeated in 2 bouts as a boxer.
