Norman: Ready To Back Up
Dyldam Parramatta Eels five-eighth Corey Norman says the side is looking forward to backing up last week’s win over South Sydney with Easter Monday’s blockbuster against the Wests Tigers at ANZ Stadium.
With a 10-day turnaround in-between games, Norman says the mood around Eels HQ has been positive.
“We took a lot of confidence out of that match, but we’ve got to back up this week because it means nothing if we don’t win this week,” he said.
“It’s been good but also like any other week; we’ve come back here and been training well, but we’ve got to worry about the Tigers now, that [last] game is gone.”
When asked about his own impressive form over the opening rounds of the 2015 season, Norman says he’s being helped by everyone else doing their job for the Blue and Gold.
“It helps when our forwards are going forward and everyone else is going well, it makes my job easier and gives you a lot of room to move,” Norman said.
Monday’s game is expected to draw a big crowd similar to 2014, where more than 50,000 spectators filled ANZ Stadium.
“It was great [last year], we got over 50,000 there last year, so that was massive and it’s a good afternoon, playing in the afternoon is always good, and playing good footy is that’s the best thing about it,” he said.
