Eels eye top four after win over Tigers

Parramatta Eels came from behind to down Wests Tigers 28-20 last night.

This is their first win at Leichhardt Oval in 21 years moving within striking range of the top two finish.

The Tigers led 12-0 until 10 minutes before halftime but paid the price for ill-discipline and went to the break trailing 16-12 after conceding three tries while rookie forward Justin Matamua was in the sin-bin.

The Eels took control in the second half and are now just two points behind North Queensland, Melbourne and Cronulla, who are equal second behind runaway competition leaders Penrith.
