It was a rapid rise for the fiery red-head as he made his NRL debut in Round 1 and quickly established himself as a fan favourite.
While, Corey Horsbrugh wasn’t the name on everyone’s lips heading into the season, two outstanding performances in the trials saw him deservedly stake a place on the bench for the season opener against the Gold Coast Titans.
Horsburgh went on to play 22 games during the season, with his minutes increasing as the season went on.
A powerful runner of the football, Horsburgh’s ability to offload came to fore as he found his way in NRL. The 21 year old finishing the season with the third highest number of offloads at the club with 26 to his name.
Midway through the season, the young Queenslander committed his future with the Raiders as he signed a three year contract with the club.
After an impressive finals campaign which saw him play close to 40 minutes in all three matches, Horsburgh was named for the Junior Kangaroos as they swept aside France.
While he is yet to score a try for the Raiders, Horsburgh scored a magnificent solo try against France to cap off an excellent 2019 season.
