The Eels fullback previews his team for 2013.
Jarryd Hayne thanked Parramatta fans for supporting the team last year despite a lackluster performance for much of the season which saw them comfortably claim the wooden spoon.
The Eels, without club legend Nathan Hindmarsh, have looked a shadow of themselves and will be desperate for new coach Ricky Stuart to turn the club mentality around.
The signing of Stuart was a great move by the club who will need a coach of Stuart’s experience and professionalism if they are to escape the wooden spoon this year.
The form of star players Hayne and Chris Sandow was nowhere near their price tags and the club will be looking for them to justify their high paying contracts this season.
It will be too early for the club to start seeing the effects of Ricky Stuart this season and 2013 will be a transition period for the club as they look to re-ignite their form.
