Pirtek Parramatta Eels second rower Daniel Harrison says he's enjoying his footy this season, after again being named to play in the starting NRL side.


"I'm really happy with how my football is going, and I'm enjoying playing first grade," he said.


"I was happy that Sticky gave me a go, and I'm really enjoying it."


Harro made 41 tackles in our game against Penrith, the most for the Eels.


"I'm making a few tackles, yeah! I don't think I've made 40 tackles since I was a 20-year-old, so I'm just enjoying it."


He says there's a good feeling in the squad leading into our match against Canberra, where the Eles are looking to break their losing streak.


"We were unlucky to not get the win last week, but we've got to build on that for Canberra, and with players [like Willie Tonga] back and the youth coming through keeping us energetic, we're ready to go."


The Raiders are coming off the bye, and with a win under their belts, Harrison says they're threatening.


"We've talked about Shillington a bit with his offloads, we've got to stop him, and they've always got a big forward pack, so we've got to match them the best we can."


It's projected to be a very chilly night in Canberra, but Harro reckons he'll cope just fine.


"I should be right in the cold, mate, redheads are used to the cold I think!" he laughed.
