Dyldam Parramatta Eels five-eighth Corey Norman insists he has “nothing to prove” when taking on his former club, the Brisbane Broncos, for the first time this Friday night at Suncorp Stadium.
The cheeky halves partner with Chris Sandow says he’s looking forward to the clash - but is treating it just as any other game.
“It’ll be a good challenge, but I can’t worry about it too much, I’ve got to worry about my job for the team,” Norman said.
“I’m just treating it as another game - it is my old club but I’ve got to go into it and take it as another game.”
Norman says he’s excited to be wearing the Blue and Gold colours - and he’s enjoying hearing the Members and supporters’ cheers.
“Both home games the [Blue and Gold army] has turned out, they’re loud and it’s good, so hopefully they can turn up at Brisbane and be a bit louder,” he laughed.
“We’ve put in a couple of good performances back to back, and hopefully we can go up there and put another good 80 minutes.”
Norman says there’s no extra pressure on him for this game - and is letting Head Coach Brad Arthur take care of the game plan.
“I’ve given a little bit [of insight] here and there, but nothing too much; Brad’s got the game plan and we’re confident in that, so we’re letting him do the work,” he said.
“I’ll probably get booed - but that’s the way it goes!”
