BIG Eorl Crabtree is aiming to finish a roller-coaster season on a real high at Warrington tomorrow.
The 22-year-old has again been pencilled in to start from the bench as England seek European Nations Cup final glory against Ireland at the Halliwell Jones Stadium (1.45).
Crabtree is joined in England's squad by Giants teammates Paul Reilly and Stuart Jones.
And after a disappointing end to his Super League season, the former Huddersfield YMCA junior is determined to finish 2004 with a bang.
"The first half of the season was fantastic, but in the second half it all fell apart," reflected Crabtree.
"To miss the final seven Giants games with a leg injury was a bitter pill to swallow.
"But if I can finish the year with a European Nations Cup winners' medal with England it will go quite a way to making up for that bitter disappointment.
"I've felt strong coming off the bench against Russia and France and I'm looking forward to playing a similar role against the Irish tomorrow.
"I've now fully recovered from all the knocks I picked up during the last Super League season and one final big game for England would be a great way to finish."
Although England coach Karl Harrison has yet to finalise his starting line-up, clubmates Reilly and Jones could also feature prominently.
Reilly has now fully recovered from the injury he picked up during the 42-4 victory over France a week ago, while Jones produced a solid show in the 98-4 thrashing of Russia the week before.
And Crabtree is keeping his fingers firmly crossed that all three play - in a winning team.
"We go into tomorrow's game as massive favourites, we should be far too strong for the Irish," added the powerful forward.
