As an off-field representative within a club’s organisation, you know you are doing something right, when up to four NRL clubs want to lure you to their club – and for Cowboys Football Manager Peter Parr, that is exactly the case for him.
Even though he still has two years to run on his current deal with the Cowboys, it has not stopped the interested parties from expressing an interest in Parr, who has been at Townsville since 2002.
For Cowboys Chief Executive Peter Jourdain, it does not surprise him that rival clubs are interested in Peter Parr, including Parramatta – but he says that the club has no intention to part ways with Parr, anytime in the future.
“Parrie has still got two years to go on contract with us and I have spoken to him about it and his preference is that he stay here and our preference is that he stays here,” Jourdain said.
“I’m not surprised that there are offers out there for him.
“That’s what happens in the game at all levels, whether it’s the players or the other guys that are good at their roles in the club, they’re going to attract offers from other clubs.
“But, as I said, he’s happy, we’re happy and he’s got two years to go. It’s not really an issue.”
With all the speculation around, Parr was reluctant to discuss his future and what it may hold.
“I’m happy doing what I’m doing and being here,” he said.
“Everyone that knows me understands my passion for the club. To provide guarantees in this industry is always difficult, but my intention is to be at the Cowboys and to see out my contract.”
