Out-of-favour stand-off Paul Cooke has a new job, and it isn’t on the playing field as the former Hull, Rovers and Wakefield player takes time out from the game to take up a columnist job with the Hull Daily Mail.
Cooke who was strongly rumoured to continue on with his playing career was speculated moves to various clubs such as Crusaders, former boss Shaun McRae’s Salford City Reds, and in the Championship leagues with Barrow Raiders and York City Knights. But the controversial figure has opted to take a year out from the sport to spend more time with his family, and concentrate on his new media duties.
With his out-right blunt opinions, he’s bound to cause a stir among many rugby league fans. It was undoubtedly the same opinions that got him into trouble back in 2007 when he departed Hull FC for derby rivals Hull Kingston Rovers in the crudest of ways.
With Cooke keen to progress into the world of media, he was delighted to be asked to produce a column for the local newspaper.
In his new weekly column with the The Daily Mail, Hull’s local newspaper, “The Cooke Report”, the 29-year-old will be analysing the progress of his former clubs Hull FC and Hull KR, and the world of Super League.
