Matt Parcell to Hull Kingston Rovers

Maybe a slightly controversial one as Parcell is generally quite highly rated among Super League fans. The Australian hooker was among the Rhinos’ best players in their 2017 title-winning campaign, but in truth never really kicked on after that.

He did however make a big impact at Craven Park when he arrived at the East-Hull club on loan during the back end of last season, and it is little surprise he is widely regarded by the Rovers’ faithful as the club’s best off-season signing going into 2020.

Revealed as officially one of the competition’s fastest players, Parcell is a dangerous dummy-half runner who isn’t afraid of a scoot from the ruck. Speed and a rugby brain is a dangerous combination.

Playing off slower play-the-balls in 2018 and 2019 clearly didn’t help the former Brisbane Bronco and Manly Sea Eagle, but he was starting to lose his fear factor.

A new club and one where he will be one of the best strike players could be the injection required for Parcell to get back to his best.
