'Hard work will be crucial'

Val Andrews looks ahead to NFL campaign

Six days out from what is potentially one of the biggest matches of the season and Val Andrews is talking straight. He rarely varies from the mantra of working harder than the opposition, and this week is no different.

The bait is cast but it's reeled back in untouched. The Johnston saga ("I don't comment on individual cases"), problems in the defence, even praise for the new midfield pairing fails to draw Andrews out. He's friendly and obliging as ever but positivity and the need for players to work, work and work, as always with Val, is the name of the game.

"We'll be looking for a performance and a result," he says simply.

"I'd hate to sound clichéd but it really is one game at a time. We can't lose the run of ourselves, we're looking for our lads to work hard, tackle hard and step up to the mark and just to be an honest team. With their youth, talent and enthusiasm, if they get a bit of luck, things should go well."
