Bow­ing out the Corey Parker way

Rugby League Week - - News -

The Kan­ga­roos full­back is signed un­til the end of this year, and wants to re­main at the club and fin­ish his ca­reer a Bronco — but he’s wary of go­ing on for too long.

“I want to fin­ish when I’m play­ing at my best and at the high­est level,” he says.

“I don’t want to feel like I’m just hang­ing on or for peo­ple to think it was time for me to go.

“I want to be like Corey Parker, in a way. When he left he was still play­ing for his state and coun­try.

“I never wanted to leave Bris­bane, but I learned a lot in the years I was away. I grew as a per­son and I prob­a­bly wouldn’t be where I am to­day with­out the ups and downs, and some of the things I went through and changed.

“I never thought I would get the op­por­tu­nity to come back here, or to come back and [have] Wayne [Ben­nett] be here, too.

“It was a dream come true to re­turn to the Bron­cos and hope­fully I can win an­other pre­mier­ship and fin­ish my ca­reer here.”
