Eels won't change game plan to suit new boy Moses

PARRAMATTA won't be changing its attack to suit the arrival of Wests Tigers defector Mitchell Moses.

Coach Brad Arthur hopes two training sessions will be enough for Moses to fit into the Eels attack for today's clash with Canberra.

"We're not going to be changing how we play," Arthur said.

"We've got a style of footy we like to play and he knows that and that's why he's joined us."

Arthur said he was impressed with the 22-year-old.

Moses attended a right-edge meeting on Wednesday morning, before a full-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 came up with a couple of good plays. We play pretty simple so it wasn't too hard to fit in."

Moses's arrival at the ninth-placed Eels ended a six-week saga after he first asked for a release from his West Tigers' contract.

"We'd been thinking it was going to happen for a while," Arthur said.

"He seems excited, full of energy.

"I think he's looking forward to having no pressure on him and just taking control of the team."
