Corey Parker to join NRL'S 300 club
Brisbane Broncos forward Corey Parker will become the 22nd player to play 300 NRL matches when he takes the field against South Sydney tonight.
Parker will be presented with the match ball from his 300th game following the round-one clash at Suncorp Stadium, officially making him a member of the '300 Club'.
"Not only is Corey playing his 300th match – he has reached the important milestone at the one club," NRL Head of Football Todd Greenberg said.
"He has also played representative football throughout his career which adds to this enormous achievement tonight.
"What strikes me about Corey is that he is incredibly well-respected amongst his peers.
"He will be a deserved member of the '300 Club' and on behalf of all Rugby League fans I would like to congratulate him on this achievement."
