Pirtek Parramatta Eels co-captain Jarryd Hayne insists the side is still hungry to win their remaining games for the 2013 season, despite their position on the ladder.

The Eels come up against the Dragons tomorrow night at Parramatta Stadium, and Haynsey says it's an important match to take the two points.

"We're playing to win. That's what we play for every week," he said.

"It's always good to play at Parra, and it was good when we found out we had one more game here, the boys are looking forward to it."

As for the Dragons side, Hayne admits he hasn't spent much time looking at their list - preferring to make sure his own team is in order.

"I haven't really worried about them this week; it's going to be a tough game but we realistically need to worry about our own backyard," he said.

"As for me, trying to make everything a bit more crisp. We started really well against Melbourne, we just need that consistency to happen over the 80 minutes."

Hayne is set to return to the side after sitting out for last round with a knee injury.

"It's alright, I'll have another run now and see how it feels, hopefully it pulls through and I'll be out there tomorrow night."

"I'll just have to wait and see."

The Monday night game is also to show our support for charity partner, the Black Dog Institute, which supports mood disorders and depression.

"The Black Dog is huge - a few of the boys are ambassadors there, and it's had a huge influence on them and we support the boys 100%."

"It's good to see them involved and it's a great cause."
