February 7, 2016 6:43 am
Vodafone Fiji Bati rep Semi Radradra scored a try to help his Parramatta Eels team win the NRL Auckland Nines rugby league tournament in New Zealand today.
The Eels beat hosts and crowd favorites New Zealand Warriors 22-4 in the final.
The Warriors went into the finals as heavy favorites in front of a parochial Eden Park crowd but the Eels caused a major boil over.
The Warriors’ defeat was further soured as star halfback Shaun Johnson limped from the field in the second half and appeared troubled by a leg injury.
The Eels had earlier defeated the Melbourne Storm 17-8 in the semi-finals while the Warriors accounted for the Gold Coast Titans 22-4.
