Scott: Room to improve

Dyldam Parramatta Eels second-rower Beau Scott sees a bright future for the Blue and Gold following a scrappy Easter Monday win over the Wests Tigers at ANZ Stadium.

New recruit Scott played the full 80 minutes of the Round 4 clash for the Blue and Gold despite picking up a knock to his shoulder and hip in Round 3, making 41 tackles in the Eels’ 8-0 win.

“There’s a lot of improvement in this team,” Scott said.

“We definitely made it harder on ourselves than we needed to,” Scott said of the performance.

“We didn’t really complete our sets like we spoke about before the game, but  the positive to come out of it [is that] we turned up for each other and the scoreline shows that.

“We didn’t put many points on but we kept them to zero; I think we still need to hold the ball and complete our sets, but whenever you keep any team to nought these days in the NRL that’s a good result.”

The veteran admitted he was still building some match fitness in the early stages of this 2016 season.

“The body’s alright,” Scott said.

“It’s still getting into the groove of week-in week-out football. But I’m looking forward to the next couple of months.”

The Eels kick off against the Penrith Panthers on Sunday, April 3, at Pirtek Stadium. Click through to purchase tickets!
