Maika Sivo and the Parramatta Eels beat the West Tigers 36-22 in a thriller at Stadium Australia last night.
The Eels looked in cruise control to lead by midway through the second half piling on three tries inside 25 minutes for a 16-0 lead with tries to Marata Niukore, Tom Opacic, and Isaiah Papali’i.
The home side enjoyed a weight of possession to storm home with two tries from Daine Laurie and Stefano Utoikamanu.
Blake Ferguson’s late heroics fended off a fast-finishing Tigers outfit who showed plenty of fight to send a scare through the Eels camp.
Wests Tigers coach Michael Maguire praised his side’s overall effort but lamented their inability to take their opportunities to the Eels.
