Manly have signed young Penrith backrower Corey Waddell on a two-year deal.

The 22-year-old was a member of the NSW Cup team that won the 2017 Intrust Super Premiership and State Championship crowns.

In a post on Instagram, Waddell said he is looking forward to starting a new journey at the Sea Eagles, after being part of the Panthers system for a number of years.

“Really excited to start my new journey at Manly Sea Eagles for the next 2 years! And I’m looking forward to the new opportunity,” Waddell posted.

“After being born and bred in Penrith and making mates for life at the club there’s no doubt I’ll miss it! Bring on 2019.”


  1. Well these types of players will come to manly atm side they know they have a chance to get a shot at first grade…
    Hopefully will be able to find 1 or 2 that actually are first graders

  2. Is he related to Greg Waddell who signed a big contract with Penrith in about 2007 as a 16 year old. He was chased by a lot of clubs but never made it.

  3. Wadell is a hard worker & a leader. Has captained the ISP side & won man of the match a few times in that grade. Pretty good runner of the ball.
    Much better player than Brown.
    Don’t think Manly fans will be disappointed him.

  4. Things must be bad at manly if a numpty coach like barrett walks out on the club.
    I cant think of any other coach thats actually done this recently 🤔🙄

    • “Making matters worse for the Sea Eagles, Channel 7 also reported that Taylor would rather coach the North Sydney Bears in the NSW Cup next year than take up the role; and that prop Addin Fonua-Blake has also had enough of the drama and wants out of the club”
      LoL !!! 😂

      • Somehow you managed to just get dumber…
        Yes let’s all believe what we read on Chanel 7…
        Well that means taupau has signed with rorters, amd that rorters aren’t actually cheating the cap…
        We all know neither of things things are true

      • That’s without knowing for a fact. That Taylor is chasing the manly job hard and he meant with manly hierarchy to pitch his ideas.
        But hey Chanel 7 said. So….

        • That Chanel no.7 must be strong stuff Bob ….. didn’t know you were still around the club after the cap cheating scandal. And hey didn’t you also play and coach with your so-called Rorters in the day. Am I being obtuse ?

          Do feel sorry for Manly and I’m not a fan or a one-eye impersonator !
