The conversation which helped secure Matt Parcell’s Hull KR future

Despite much speculation to the contrary, Matt Parcell will remain a Hull KR player in 2023.

It had been rumoured that Parcell was headed down under with former club Brisbane Broncos reportedly interested in the hooker.

However, he has now signed a new two-year deal at the club which will keep him at Craven Park until the end of 2024. This is despite what Chief Executive Paul Lakin described as “genuine NRL interest.”

The new deal will see him play under new coach Willie Peters in the first two years of his contract with the club as he takes over from Tony Smith and it seems a conversation with Peters helped Parcell make the decision to stay with the Robins.

When speaking about his new deal with the club, Parcell said of this conversation: “I had a really good chat with Willie Peters the other day, it was good to speak to him on how he doesn’t want to change too much about my game and how he wants the team to play. He’ll have his spin on it and then add what he wants from the team.

“He (Peters) really enjoys my running game and he wants to keep that going, that’s a big thing for me. I think that’s when I play my best and what I excel at, that’s where Tony (Smith) has been brilliant with me too.”
So, despite only being confirmed as Hull KR boss a few days ago, Peters is already having a huge impact.
