Co-captain Nathan Friend looks at tomorrow clash against the Eels that starts our Festival of Footy and knows ball control is what will set the platform.

"Our defence is the key indicator for us, and getting to the back end of the season you want to be improving in that area if you want to go any further," he said.

He knoss the wounded Eels are a danger sise despite what they have had thrown at them this season.

"Last week's performance was very positive, we need to build on that."
