NRL Confidential: Old Kangaroos cheat sheet leaked, Josh Reynolds’ TV cooking dream

Meanwhile Josh Reynolds reveals his reality TV dream, and Jamal Idris opens up about his religion.

Take a look at the social side of the game in NRL Confidential:


Corey Parker has leaked an old Australian team cheat sheet from one of the Kangaroos’ clashes with rival New Zealand.

Parker posted a photo of two sheets of paper, on which is a game plan devised to tackle the Kiwis in Wellington.

One side is for “offence” and the other for “defence”.

Parker defends Hunt's decision

Some have questioned the motives surrounding the halfback's move, but Parker moved quickly to support his ex-teammate.

Bennett hunting Sims and James to bolster pack

Sims is unsettled at Newcastle and is keen to settle at a more established and successful club, meaning there is high possibility of him walking out on the final year of his $400,000 a year contract.

Meanwhile James has reportedly been offered a big money contract by the inter-state rivals, although he is set to reject the deal and finalise a new three-year commitment to the Titans.

Bennett is desperate for a forward leader and might have to settle for only Sims, with James likely to stay put at the Gold Coast.

Corey Parker and Nathan Friend collide again after broken jaw and a 15-year friendship — Pressure Gauge

So it’s only fair the retiring Gold Coast skipper gets the chance to end Parker’s career earlier than he would like.

Parker has never left Brisbane in 345 games.

Friend is back at the Titans for a second and final stint, having started alongside Parker at Red Hill with one solitary game for the Broncos in 2002.

He went to Melbourne, then the Gold Coast. Then across the ditch, where in 2012 he played 75 minutes and made 49 tackles for the Warriors with a broken jaw, sustained in an attempted tackle on Parker.

Corey Parker announced as Broncos captain

The Broncos announced the decision to make Parker captain on Friday at their Red Hill headquarters, just six days out from their Round 1 clash against Parramatta.

In his 17th season at the club, Parker will now officially take over from the retired Justin Hodges as he looks to guide the side to their first premiership since 2006.

A co-captain with Hodges in 2014, Parker says taking sole responsibility of the job is one of the greatest feelings he has ever had as a player.

"It is the greatest honour of my career. It is top of the tree," Parker said.
