Eels works on defence

Aap
Friday, February 07, 2014

SYDNEY - Parramatta superstar Jarryd Hayne has declared a miserly defence can be the cornerstone of an Eels revival under new coach Brad Arthur.

Parramatta have easily been the worst defensive side of the last two NRL seasons, a fact Hayne readily admits, but the Kangaroos utility says things are set to change dramatically this year.

Defence has been the Eels' pre-season priority under Arthur, according to Hayne, as they seek to bounce back from successive wooden spoons.

"Brad has come in and we spent the first six weeks just on our defence," Hayne told AAP.

"Our attack is probably not quite where it needs to be at the moment but I would rather have our defence in order, than have our defence put pressure on our attack and an attack that is a bit of razzle and the pressure then is on our defence.

"We were the worst in the comp last year so that is something we have been looking a lot at and it is something we definitely have to fix."
