Fittler told Wide World of Sports that Eels captain Gutherson was pencilled in at right centre for the Origin opener last June, as incumbent James Roberts fell out of favour.

But then Parramatta hit a three-game skid before selection, starting with a 64-10 thrashing from Melbourne and capped by a dismal loss to Penrith. NSW veteran Josh Morris got the nod for game one.

"He's quite a character at training, Gutho. A ball of energy, he's as fit as they come, leads everything," Johns said on Freddy and the Eighth.

Johns said that, barring injuries, Parramatta was a top four-calibre team this season. They finished fifth last season and will again have Mitchell Moses and Dylan Brown as their halves this year.

"Mitchell Moses, really impressed with him. He's got all the tools to be a top-line player," Johns said.

"I think Mitchell in particular has to pull it back. It seems to me he goes out on the field and he's got all these bullets and wants to fire them in the first 20 minutes, and then if he doesn't see the scoreboard ticking over, he can get quite anxious.

"Where if anything, he just needs to pull it back and [use] more of that game management. But in terms of skill and vision, he's up there with all the really top halfbacks.

"Dylan Brown, I knew he was a good player, but he's got some special talent.

"He's just got time. He's a fairly laid-back sort of character.

"The big thing with him is trying to communicate to the players around him what he wants to do and the organising side of things.

"But you see those players that just have time and without being too technical, he plays straight into the line, which commits those defenders. I think he's in for a big year, Dylan Brown."
