Lussick: "We want to finish on a high"

Pirtek Parramatta Eels forward Darcy Lussick says the boys are looking to enjoy their final game together for the 2013 season, with a number of players moving on at the end of the year.


Lussick says the motivation to get back-to-back wins is also important.


"Obviously if [the Knights] lose they're probably out, so they'll be playing for their season, and we're playing for a bit of pride, so it'd be nice to win any game," he said.


"We haven't put back-to-back wins together all year, so it'd be nice to get it in our last game."


Darcy says the mood at training has been buzzing after their 26-22 win last weekend - with just one more game for the year.


"You just enjoy your time with the boys and enjoy your last game with them and hopefully get a win," he said.


He puts last week's victory down to strong performances across the park, which had been lacking in previous rounds.


"We toughed it out last week, being down 12-0 right from the start wasn't ideal, but there were a lot of good performances from people individually that have been missing all year," he said.


"So I thought the effort was there across the board last week and it definitely showed."


With the Knights needing a victory to stay in the top eight, Lussick says it'll be a tough, physical game.


"They've got some great forwards and some pretty skilful backs, so we've got our job cut out ahead of us this week."
