Head Coach Justin Holbrook has had his final say ahead of tomorrow’s match against the Parramatta Eels at Cbus Super Stadium.
Here are five talking points ahead of the clash:
1. Team Changes
It looks like the side will be 1-17 with last year’s Paul Broughton Medal winner Moeaki Fotuaika set to make his first appearance of season 2020.
“Yeah, everyone is good and we’re right for tomorrow’s game,” Holbrook said.
“He’s sweet which is great. He’s raring to go.
“He’s had a good couple of weeks of training and he’ll be a great addition for us this week.”
2. The coronavirus pandemic
“Nothing’s changed other than us taking more precautions around us doing things here.
“Once we get in here everything is normal which is great.
“When they (the players) go home they need to take more precautions in that area but in terms of when we’re here it’s just a normal week.
3. What needs to change after last week
“We didn’t start the game well and that’s definitely what we need to improve on.
“Collectively we all need to play better than last week which is real important.
“The preparation is different because we’re not travelling. We probably didn’t handle that well as a group last week.
“In terms of this week we’re at home so it’s a different scenario for us. We’ll be ready to go.”

4. No members and fans in attendance
“I think it might be running out (a bit different). I think players just get on with it.
“There have been some really good games already this weekend and we’re expecting no different tomorrow.
“The crowds are a great addition (to our game) but without them the game still goes on and it’s great for our game that it is.”
5. The dangers from Parramatta
“They’re a great side, they showed it last year. They’ve got strike all across the park and we know we’ll need to match them, which we’re planning on doing.
“They’ve got a good pack of forwards who like to offload the footy. (Mitch) Moses is doing a real good job and had a good season last year. He’s come out of the blocks well this year as well.
“There is strike across the park and they’ve got fair wingers as well.
“For us it’s about being proud of the way we play. We let ourselves down last week and we have a chance to turn it around tomorrow.”
