It was early in February 2021 that Cory was first confirmed as one of the Chiefs’ players to be dual registered with the Cornish Pirates for the belated 2020/21 Championship campaign. He made two appearances and added 41 more in the two seasons that followed to take his tally to 43.
Cory played his early rugby for Wadebridge and was educated at Bodmin College where he achieved a Level 1/2 Carpentry qualification. His parents have always been supportive, which has been much appreciated, and his respected coach at college, Tom Rawlings, has also helped him develop as a player.
For the Chiefs, Cory initially represented them from under 16s and later played in the Premiership Cup and the ‘A’ League competitions. He also, in 2019/20, when playing for Taunton Titans, helped the Somerset team achieve promotion from National Two South.
As for hobbies and interests, carpentry is still enjoyed, as are basketball and mountain biking – when time permits
