GREG Eden has spoken of the brave decision that has spawned an NRL debut Wayne Bennett once thought was ‘a thousand miles away’.

Eden will make his NRL debut for the Broncos against the Eels after 18 months of toil in Australia.

Many expected him to go back to England in the off-season after spending the year biding his time in the Queensland Cup.

But even after 75 games in the English Super League, Eden knew he had much learn.

Now after a great off-season and a striking display in the World Club series against Wigan, Eden will live his dream.

“At last - I have worked hard for it for my full career,” said Eden today.

“Last year I worked harder here and this pre-season has been really good, so now I have got my chance.

“Times did get tough last year but it was my life ambition to come out here.

“If I had gone it wouldn’t have happened.

“So I just had to stick at it while I had the time and it has paid off.”

Eden said his family were possibly even more pleased than him.

“They were stoked as well - they know it's my dream,” he said.

“They were probably even happier than me - my mum gets pretty giddy with stuff like this.

“It’s a pretty happy camp.”

Yesterday Bennett admitted Eden had surprised him with his progress this season.

“Last year he was a thousand miles away from being an NRL player,” he said.

“But to his credit he hung in, and he didn’t get an easy time of it.

“We challenged him. He had the talent, but his attitude was so far off the pace it didn’t matter.

“He has changed a lot of things.”

Eden said he was expecting the hardest of debuts against the Eels tonight.

“I'm expecting it to be one of the toughest games of my career and a big step up from what I am used to,” he said.
