In 2015, Parcell joined the Brisbane Broncos.

On 3 May, he played for the Queensland Residents against the New South Wales Residents. In Round 12 of the 2015 NRL season, he made his NRL debut for the Broncos against the Canberra Raiders. On 18 August, he signed a 3-year contract with the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles starting in 2016.
Parcell's first competitive showing with the Sea Eagles was during the first day of the 2016 NRL Auckland Nines at Eden Park in New Zealand. He crossed for the winning try for Manly in their opening game against the Broncos, and later replicated the feat by scoring the winning try in their second game against the New Zealand Warriors. In December, he signed a 3-year contract with Super League side Leeds Rhinos, after being released from the final two years of his Sea Eagles contract.
