Parramatta Eel Kris Keating broke his jaw in Rd 10 last year, at that time he was the starting halfback. Since then things have changed dramtically under the dynamic new halves combination of Daniel Mortimer and Jeff Robson, from which the Eels made a Grand Finals berth in dramatic fashion. Now he’s back, 100% fit and wants to reclaim his spot. Even though Coach Anderson has made it clear that the Mortimer/Robson combination will remain unchanged for the start of the season, Keating and a few of the other youngsters at the Eels are definitely still in the mix. “He just said I’d get a chance in trials before the season and I know I have to really impress by just being consistent and improving little things. He’s let me get back into it in my own time. It’s going to be really tough but I just have to keep training hard and doing everything I can to show Daniel I’m ready.” Kris Keating is priced at $190,300 (?) in the halves at DT HQ.
