Scott: We need to go across there and get the win
The Parramatta Eels take on the New Zealand Warriors at Mt Smart Stadium this weekend for their Round Six clash of the NRL Telstra Premiership.
Speaking ahead of the clash, Blue & Gold co-captain Beau Scott says the side knows what they need to do to improve from their last few performances and come away with the two points this weekend.
“We have worked hard this week on attack and defence,” Scott said.
“We have to go to New Zealand, and that is always a hard trip across the ditch but we know what we have to do to get better.”
“We need to go across there and get the win.” Scott added.
The Warriors are coming off a victory over the Gold Coast Titans last week, and Scott says he will be expecting another tough challenge against former teammate Kieran Foran, who returned to the playing field last week, starring in their victory.
“I watched bits and pieces of his game. I am glad to see him back in the NRL, obviously he is a handy player and we will have our work cut out for us this weekend,” Scott said.
“I think you get to know each other’s traits when you play alongside someone else in the same team. It is handy [playing with him previously] but he will be a handful.”
“He is a natural footballer that loves the game. When he was allowed back playing the game, doesn’t matter who it was for, I was happy for him,” Scott added.
And with plenty of media speculation around Mitchell Moses over the past few days, Scott had little to say on the issue.
“If and when that happens, we will have something to say then but for the time being, we have to concentrate on this weekend’s game and playing footy,” Scott said.
“He is handy but we will wait to see if he ends up at Parramatta or not.”
The Eels take on the New Zealand Warriors at Mt Smart Stadium for Round Six of the NRL Telstra Premiership on Sunday 9 April. Kick off is at 4pm NZ local time (2pm AEST).
