Simpson leaves Naitanui door ajar

Eagles coach Adam Simpson says Nic Naitanui continues to train strongly whilst his side head into a semi-final on Saturday.

There is continued talk that the Eagles could be tempted to roll the dice on Naitanui in a bid to prolong their finals campaign. 

Simpson told Macquarie Radio that he hadn't had a chance to get an update this week. 

“He trained again today, he trained well with the younger players. So at this stage he’s still training with us and we’ll still tick over the days." Simpson said. 

“He’s still on the comeback trail so we’ve just got to make sure he’s fully ready for 70 minutes plus of combative, finals-like football."

"I haven't had a chance to sit down with the medicos this week."

The Eagles will travel to Sydney on Thursday before Saturday night's clash with the Giants.
