Cowboy #264

Former Cowboys NYC forward Corey Jensen left the club at the end of the 2014 season and spent the next two years plying his trade with the Townsville Blackhawks, helping the side to consecutive finals series.

Through hard work and good form, Corey landed his first NRL contract and started his first NRL pre-season with the Cowboys for 2017.

That pre-season hard work was turned into an NRL debut in Round 7 against the Dragons as Jensen impressed with his hard running, solid defence and A-plus attitude to training and the team-first ethos of the Cowboys.

He didn’t even blink when, in one game, he was overlooked in the interchange rotation and didn’t get any game time.

After playing three straight games, Jensen moved back to the Queensland Cup, but would return in Round 15 to reclaim his bench forward’s spot, which he would hold on to all the way to the 2017 grand final.

Jensen’s breakout season was rewarded at year’s end with Rookie of the Year honours, plus a two-year contract extension.

For the second consecutive season Corey Jensen emerged as a reliable option off the bench for North Queensland Toyota Cowboys head coach Paul Green.

The 24-year-old would go on to play 18 games from the season, including two starts – in Round 13 against Manly and Round 16 against South Sydney.
