Anderson turned us around: Cayless

Kiwi international Nathan Cayless may be preparing for Friday’s all-Sydney blockbuster against the Bulldogs, but he has admitted that Parramatta also has one eye on the NRL’s greatest prize.<br><br>Speaking in the wake of a crushing victory over a brave Titans outfit, the hard running forward has pin-pointed his side’s momentum as a key factor that could take them all the way to grand final glory.<br><br>“We have got to keep [the momentum] going. Nobody remembers who came 2nd, 3rd or 4th, everyone remembers who won the comp and that’s all that matters,” Cayless revealed on Bigpond Sports Weekend. <br><br>The Eels notched up a 27-2 point victory on Friday night, but Cayless admitted the score did not accurately depict what was a highly physical and grinding affair.<br><br>“We were under pressure a lot through the game.

He gives some good ones…. I cop it all the time. He doesn’t care who you are.<br><br>“He [Inu] was just about to cry, he didn’t know what was going on.” <br><br>It is now obvious that there is a method to Anderson’s madness, as the famous blue and gold’s have won nine of their last ten.<br><br>If they are able make it eleven wins out from their last twelve, they would complete one of the most remarkable mid season comebacks is history.<br><br><b><a href="http://bigpondvideo.com/Sports-Summer-Highlights/209705" target="_blank">CLICK HERE to watch the complete interview.</a></b><br>
