Pirtek Parramatta Eels forward Pat O'Hanlon says the team is now playing for pride, with the final three rounds of the 2013 NRL season upon us.

"We're just trying to stick together and show some companionship, and get through the season as tight as possible," he said.

"Ever since I've been here it's been a really tight-knit club, and that hasn't changed."

"It's good to see everyone have a positive outlook on what's been a pretty poor season."

Pat says they're still working hard to improve week-to-week.

"Hopefully we can take a few positives out of the game [against Brisbane] and bounce into this week's game against the Storm," he said.

"I think it came down to a few simple plays in execution, if we get a few of those things right, then I think the score really changes in our favour."

Despite that, Pat admits the Storm are a formidable task when playing on home soil.

"Melbourne will be a really tough challenge - they're probably the benchmark of the competition, and it's never easy going down there and playing them there," he said.

"So were going to have to work hard on the little things."

"We're going to have to be 100 percent in attack and defence - you've got to be pretty much perfect to beat them down there - and we're going to train with that mindset and we'll see how we go."
