After a long summer of rehabilitation, which took him to his birthplace of Ireland in a search for answers to his groin pain, Corr's slow recovery finally took a positive turn early this year, and after three games in the NEAFL, he finally returned against the Swans.
"It's been a bit of a disaster. The big one for me was missing the finals (last year), and if I could give up all those games I'd played before them to play finals, I would have," Corr said.
"You've just got to deal with it, it just takes time. I had it from midway through the year and I was dealing with it, but it just became too much (after round 17).
"It was a slow build and I saw some specialists in Ireland and all those little things helped a lot. I wouldn't say it fast-tracked (my recovery) because it still took ages, but it is what it is and I'm happy I'm back playing."
