Parramatta halfback Mitchell Moses is the latest Eel to hit out at whispers of infighting, amid the club's slide from premiership contenders to top-eight featherweight.

Injured hooker Reed Mahoney told Sydney's Nine News this week that talk of unrest among the Eels camp must have come from "an outer source that is jealous".

Mahoney's retaliation has come on the back of a four-game losing streak, during which the Eels have dropped out of the top four.

Moses followed Mahoney's comments by saying "everyone's up in spirits" and labelling the Eels "tight", even after their 56-10 humiliation at the hands of the Sea Eagles on Saturday.

"It's nothing that we need to speak about now," Moses said in a Zoom media conference.

"We know that we haven't been up to scratch and we need to change that. That's what we're looking to do this week [against the Cowboys].

"The playing group feels pretty fine, everyone's up in spirits, we know what we're doing wrong and we need to fix that."

While Moses was largely steely-eyed as he responded to reports of disharmony, he did find room for some humour at the expense of captain Clint Gutherson.

"Gutho's got a two-level penthouse or something, so I think everyone else is a bit off it," Moses laughed.

"No, that's just a little bit of noise. Look, I don't know where any of that stuff has come from.

"But we know as a group that we're pretty tight and there's definitely none of that happening."
