Parramatta Eels rally around Shaun Lane after Mad Monday photo makes headlines

He is expected to train this afternoon and Eels captain Clint Gutherson said the players will all lend their support wherever possible.

“We will support Laney as much as we can but that’s up to the club and the NRL to sort out,” Gutherson said.

“I’m sure it will probably hit him but he has the support avenues there to look after him and to make sure he’s all right.

“It has nothing to do with me. We just have to support him as a mate and look after him.”

Eels veteran David Gower said Parramatta players had already offered their support when Lane told them about the imminent headlines on Monday.

“We rallied around Sean last night when he told us,” Gower said. “(But) it happened at a previous club. It wasn’t on our watch.

“We need to focus on the game and we’re paid to play football.

“We aren’t paid to listen to media hype or to listen to negative headlines that people are going to run.

“We need to be professional and our whole focus is on getting better as a team at training and that starts today for us.”
