Wests Tigers fullback Adam Doueihi says attitude will be key for his side on Thursday as they look to build on last week's big win.

Despite a superb performance last week against the Brisbane Broncos that saw Wests Tigers record its fourth biggest win in club history, the 21-year-old said it would amount to little if they didn't back up this week against the in-form Eels.

“It'll definitely be a big test," Doueihi said of Thursday's blockbuster clash.

"Parramatta has been flying and they’re in the top two for a reason. They’ve put in some good performances in this year and have a great pack that are all running hard.

"But we'll be ready for it.

"For us, we need to be hungry and have a good attitude at training," he said.

"What we do there transfers to the game and we showed that last week with our performance. Defence is all about attitude and our attitude was right up there last week, so we'll look to match that or better it this weekend."

Having played with a number of new combinations in the spine in recent weeks, Doueihi said he was enjoying the strong standards in place put in place by Maguire and the way the team had taken on those standards as their own.

“We know as a club we have new standards this year to what we’ve had in the past,” Doueihi said. “All the successful teams already have those standards set and we’ve set the high standard now but it’s nothing unreachable.

"We want to be a tough team that puts in every week.

“We’re sick of being known as the club to put in the performance one week and then not backing up for the next two weeks.

“With the new standards coming in this year we want to train at a bigger intensity and take that into the game and put that effort in for the full 80 minutes.”
