Korbin Sims

Sims wants to play prop for Broncos

McGuire would be following in former captain Corey Parker's footsteps if he made the positional change, with Parker often playing in the front row before his permanent move to lock in 2009. 

Parker's retirement last year has given coach Wayne Bennett a major decision to make as the 2017 NRL season fast approaches. 

Korbin Sims released from Knights

Sims, who joined the Club in 2011 and played 76 NRL games, was contracted for the 2017 season.

"The club carefully considered the request and following further discussions with Korbin and his management have decided to grant his release," CEO Matt Gidley said.

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.

Sims charged over high shot

Sims is set to miss one match if he pleads guilty or is found guilty at the judiciary, due to having 30 carryover points to his name.

Earlier, Dragons duo Jason Nightingale and Leeson Ah Mau and Cowboys hooker Jake Granville were hit with match review charges but all three can avoid suspensions with early pleas.
