Paki enjoys his taste of NRL and is keen for more action

AN OPPORTUNITY to mix it with some of the NRL's best has Capras enforcer Arlin Paki wanting more.

The 26-year-old Rockhampton Leagues Club Capras prop suited up for the Brisbane Broncos in their first NRL preseason trial on Saturday night.

Given an unrestricted licence from Broncos coach Anthony Griffin, Paki (pictured) spent about 15 minutes on the paddock as the Broncos went down 32-8 in the trial match at Redcliffe's Dolphin Oval.

"Hook just said to me, 'I know you won't know the plays, I just want you to run the ball as many times as you can and just make sure you keep the middle tight'," Paki said.

"It was quick. I thought my defence was good. I felt confident."

Paki said he was looking forward to playing against the PNG Hunters, who defeated the Northern Pride 26-18 in a trial at Barlow Park, Cairns on Sunday.
