Biography

Joining Newcastle from Coventry Bears for 2016, Parker enjoyed an impressive first season on Tyneside, making 23 appearances over the course of the season and scoring eight tries.

He also provided a useful second goal kicking option for Thunder, adding 36 points with the boot to his personal tally of 68 for the year.

Part of the Great Britain and Ireland universities side that embarked on an unbeaten tour of South Africa, Parker earned his first professional contract after impressing in the student four nations.

A versatile player who is equally adept at back row, where he played on occasion with Thunder during 2016, he is an important retention for the club heading into the New Year and is pleased to have committed for 2017.
