QUEENSLAND and Australia representative Corey Parker has been named captain of the Brisbane Broncos for 2016.

Parker takes over from centre Justin Hodges who retired following last year’s thrilling grand final loss to the Cowboys.

It’s not the first time the 33-year-old has skippered the club, being named co-captain with Hodges in 2014 under former Broncos coach Anthony Griffin.

“It goes without saying what the club means to me,” Parker told the Broncos website.

“To be involved in the club for such a long period of time and to have played over 300 games – to be given an outright captaincy at this later stage of my career is something I’ll truly treasure.

“I’m very fortune to have etched my name beside some of the greatest players to have played the game and to lead this iconic club.”

Parker made his debut for the Broncos in 2001 and has gone on to play 323 NRL games. In addition to club duties, he has played 16 Origins for the Maroons and 12 Tests for the Kangaroos.
