New Eel Moses looks to slip right in

NT News - - SPORT -

PAR­RA­MATTA hopes two train­ing ses­sions will be enough for new ar­rival Mitchell Moses to fit into the attack for to­day’s NRL clash with Can­berra.

Moses trained along­side his new team­mates for just the sec­ond time yes­ter­day, three days af­ter ar­riv­ing from the Wests Tigers.

Eels coach Brad Arthur has been im­pressed with the 22year-old since they first met for a video ses­sion on Tues­day evening.

He was in­tro­duced through a right-edge meet­ing on Wed­nes­day morn­ing, be­fore a full­came team ball-work ses­sion.

“It prob­a­bly went bet­ter than ex­pected,” Arthur said.

“It ran the chance of be­ing a bit clunky and dis­jointed but it was to­tally the op­po­site. He up with a cou­ple of good plays. We play pretty sim­ple so it wasn’t too hard to fit in.”

Moses com­pleted a light cap­tain’s run yes­ter­day morn­ing, but the real test will come against the 10th-placed Raiders at ANZ Sta­dium.

His ar­rival is well timed, given the Eels have lost reg­u­lar half Corey Nor­man for six weeks with an an­kle in­jury.

But Arthur said they wouldn’t be chang­ing their at­tack­ing struc­ture to fit around Moses, as he was set to part­ner Clin­ton Guther­son in the halves and make the most of his run­ning game.
