Everyone in the media has been talking about the Eels capacity to close out a game through a renewed mindset, but not much mention of our fitness levels.
I don't know how many times last year we looked tired and you could almost pick the point of the game where we were going to lose it purely because we were looking more tired than the opposition, now in 2019 we look much fitter and I think that is playing a massive role in our ability to win the close games.
I also heard Spud Carrol this week say he had taken the eels forwards for a few sessions at his Gym and has taken Kane Evans under his wing and is trying to get a bit more mongrel into him (nice to see an old Retro forward that never played for us, show some interest in the younger NRL generation)
Not sure what Carrol may have said to Evans , but it seems to have inspired him in recent times
Anyhow I am now preparing for the eels to give it a nice solid shot at aiming for the Top 4. Go Parra
