Coote’s warn­ing on fi­nals

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

“But we’re not look­ing that far ahead at the mo­ment, we’re tak­ing each game as it comes and pre­par­ing for the next game.

“I think when it goes closer we’ll fo­cus on the fi­nals more.”

Coote said the team’s fo­cus was purely on Par­ra­matta on Mon­day, and they were keen on avoid­ing a sim­i­lar start to round 13.

The Eels ran ram­pant against the Cow­boys, scor­ing 30 points in 45 min­utes, but will likely be un­der­strength with An­thony Wat­mough ( out for the sea­son), Chris Sandow ( re­leased) and Corey Nor­man ( knee) miss­ing.

Book­mak­ers Sports­bet have the Eels at a whop­ping $ 8.50 to win against the Cow­boys in Townsville on Mon­day.

“I’ve touched on it many times that it’s re­ally im­por­tant we pre­pare right and ob­vi­ously our fo­cus is on de­fence,” he said.

“We’ve been pretty slack in that, not against Manly but the weeks be­fore that, and we can’t come out again and have a slow start against Parra this week.”
