Brisbane Broncos in the hunt for Super League hooker

Rugby League mistake

Former Ipswich Jets hooker Matt Parcell could be coming home to Australia after five years in Super League.

That’s according to the Courier Mail which has revealed that Parcell is a target for the Brisbane Broncos with a view to returning to the NRL after five seasons in Super League.

Parcell was a member of the Ipswich Jets team which made history by becoming the first side in the club’s history to win the premiership after beating Townsville in the 2015 Intrust Super Cup grand final.

The wily number nine played six games for the Broncos in that year and then another 15 for Manly Sea Eagles in 2016 before a move to Leeds Rhinos came about ahead of the 2017 season.

Parcell won the Super League Grand Final in his first season with the Rhinos, but left on-loan for Hull KR in 2020 and then permanently at the end of 2020.

Known for his toughness and conniving nature around dummy-half, Parcell has scored 45 tries in 117 games for Leeds and Hull KR, but the Courier Mail has revealed that he is hunting a deal back home.

Parcell has been offered to the Broncos, but Brisbane recruitment chiefs are reportedly content with hookers Jake Turpin and Cory Paix, though Turpin has been linked with a move to the Dolphins which could prompt Brisbane into the market.
