Corey Warner is the brother of Chad at Sydney, senior coach John Longmire identified the role & strengths of Corey in an interview post-draft on Sportsday.  

“He’s a little bit of a different type to Chad,”

“He’ll probably play that wing/high half-forward role”

“He’s an amazing athlete, his speed & power/endurance combination is really of a high level.” Longmire said. 

Warner will join the squad in Sydney in the new year.

2022 AFL Fantasy: Miller Bergman


Warner averaged 24.0 Disposals, 3.6 Marks & 2.7 Tackles from 9 games in the WAFL Colts in 2021, he averaged 12.8 Disposals from 4 games at league level.


Fantasy Impact: Corey Warner will provide class to the half-forward line at the Swans, he has good vision & a high ability to hit targets inside forward 50.

He’s good speed out of congestion & can play through the midfield, he’s set for a role in the forward line to begin his career.

The short term fantasy prospects for Warner might be appealing, he is likely to adapt to AFL level quite comfortably but the Swans have good depth at a similar position. It is likely he will see opportunities in 2022, his delivery by foot will be an asset for the Swans. 

The longer term prospects should be solid, he is likely to settle into a half-forward role then has the potential to run through the midfield. That’s when his scoring output should start to elevate. 

Warner would be a consideration if he can force his way into the Swans team in season long fantasy, keep updated on his pre-season for any potential early opportunities.

He’s likely a pass in single season draft leagues, he’s an option to target just beyond the early selections in dynasty leagues. A midfield role once he develops a tank & body size is a possibility.
