Coach praises Fiji Bati playmaker

PARAMATTA Eels coach Brad Arthur has piled praises on Fiji Bati rep Jarryd Hayne for his commitment at their pre-season training in Australia.

The Eels completed a training camp on the Central Coast earlier this week which provided a 5.9 kilometre test around the sand dunes at Soldiers Beach. Young Eels prop, Daniel Alvaro won the test.

The Daily Telegraph reported that coach Arthur did not expect Hayne to set the pace in the 5.9km test.

"He (Hayne) is never going to win that sort of stuff, but you know what, when we are doing our footy stuff and speed work, he is in the best couple," Arthur said.

"It was the same with Semi Radradra. Semi would be last, but you have to remember they are different athletes. Jarryd's attitude has been great, unbelievable. He has done everything since he has been here. He is training really well.

"Like I said, he is never going to win a time trial or a sand dune run, but he is getting fitter and he is getting better," Arthur said.

Fiji Bati reps Hayne and Kane Evans are part of the Paramatta Eels squad this season. The National Rugby League (NRL) season starts on March 8 and Eels will face Panthers in its first match on Sunday March 11.
