Parramatta Eels coach Brad Arthur has praised his team for their resilience after Sunday evenings 24 – 10 defeat of St George Illawarra.

The Eels backline was forced to reshuffle going into the game with Bevan French moved to the wing to accommodate the return of Michael Jennings return to the centers.

Arthur (pictured) says the way First Nations flyer  French responded to the move after excelling at fullback,  was a sign of just how far the young flyer has come in his time in the NRL.
