FINAL WORD: Penna - We'll be up for it

With the Sea Eagles letting a 20-point lead slip against the Melbourne Storm last week, Assistant Coach David Penna let's us in on what has been discussed this week at training in Narrabeen.

"This week we really had to address the way we started the second half. We felt that last week was a game that we really let slip and that we should have won." 

"They say there is no such thing as a good loss, but in a way we seemed to be a lot more focussed this week and it's a big challenge up for us this week against the Bunnies. We'll certainly be up for it a lot more in the second half, that's for certain."

With some uncharacterisic errors and an unfavourbale penalty count at Brookvale, Penna believes this week it is simply a case of going back to basics to get the result.

"Our main concern this week is to make sure that we do all the main things right. If we do that we'll be ok."

He was impressed last week with the performance of some of the young forwards in Hasson, Starling, Lui and Sene-Lefao but also feels the return of Jason King will give those boys that extra motivation and experience they need to go even better.

"Kingy (Jason King) is back this week and he'll give us that leadership role that we really need and have missed a bit. The young guys will only learn from him and only get better."
