Anthony Corrie (born in Darwin,[1] 22 June 1984) is a former professional Australian rules footballer who had a 56 game Australian Football League (AFL) career.

Regarded as of the most talented under 18s in the country, he was named All-Australian and won the Harrison Medal at the Under 18 National Championships 2002, attracting the attention of AFL talent scouts. The Brisbane Lions recruited him in the 2003 AFL Draft from the Southern Districts Football Club. In 2004 he made his AFL debut with the Brisbane Lions against West Coast. Of indigenous heritage, he began playing junior football with the Nightcliff Football Club in the Northern Territory and represented the Northern Territory Thunder side.[2]

Corrie suffered a setback when he broke his jaw in round 12 in a collision with Essendon Football Club's Dustin Fletcher. A finger injury once again proved to be a setback to his career. In 2006, after a couple of in-form games, Corrie ruptured his Anterior Cruciate Ligament on a fall against Fremantle, ending his season.

He was delisted at the end of 2006,[3] but was redrafted by the Lions with their first selection in the 2006 Rookie Draft.

At the end of season 2008, Corrie joined Collingwood on trade week, with Brisbane picking up pick 93 though was delisted at the end of the 2010 AFL season.
