Matt Parcell extends Hull KR contract

Matt Parcell has signed a new two-year deal with Hull KR.

The new extended contract will keep the hooker at Craven Park until the end of 2024.

Parcell, 29, joined the Robins mid-way through the 2019 season. He had previously been linked with a move back to Australia for the 2023 campaign.

The hooker originally made the switch to Super League with Leeds in 2017, making his debut against St Helens.

He said: “The club’s been brilliant to me since I’ve been here. The group of guys we have, it’s a joy coming to training and getting to play with them every week. I’m really enjoying where I’m at.
“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.
“The last couple of years have been quite tough with covid and not seeing the family for a while. But, after speaking to Willie (Peters) I was really excited by the chat and his vision for the team so that made my decision a lot easier.
“Since I’ve started at the club, it’s progressed a lot on and off the field. I think to continue to be part of that is brilliant. Going into last year we weren’t a team many were thinking would be at the top of the table. But, internally we were really confident. It’s a really good group of guys, we all play for each other and we all love each other’s company.”
