This is what Hoppa Jrn is reported to have said: "Definitely the club is in a building phase so I wouldn't say to panic too much at the moment," Will said in a statement released by the Eels before the match. "Steve (Kearney) and the coaching staff know what they're doing and they are planning for the future. "The mentality Steve has and what he's shown me as the guideline for the club has really caught my attention, and is something I'm really looking forward to........" I'm sure this is just ' spin'. Kearney won't be there by the time Hoppa Jrn joins Parra - but if he think so highly of this bloke then for his sake I hope he has a Hassler-like get-out clause. Having to play for a rabble like Parra will really test Hoppa's beliefs.
