We're underway here at Leichhardt Oval. Wests Tigers received the kick off.


1st min: Wests Tigers kicked out on the full from the first set. Eels go on the attack.


6th min: Strong defence from Wests Tigers pushes Parramatta back into the in-goal. Repeat set.


8th min: TRY! Manaia Rudolph sends Leva Li over to the right of the posts.


12th min: Eels almost score through fullback Isaiah Mosese, who is held up by scrambling defence to the left of the posts. If he'd gone though the hands, Parramatta would have scored.


17th min: Eels attacking Wests Tigers line, but concede a penalty as massive prop Pauli Pauli runs behind his team mate.


25th min: Wests Tigers finally work their way back up towards Parramatta's tryline, but drop the ball soon after. They looked dangerous with ball in hand when given a chance.


28th min: TRY! Wests Tigers go the length of the field with Manaia Cherrington finishing a fantastic try.


David Nofoaluma came off his wing to take an early hit up, made a great half break before offloading to fullback Kurtis Rowe. Rowe got the crowd on its feet, beating a number of players including the fullback before offloading brilliantly to Cherrington who evaded the cover defence.


32nd min: Curtis Sironen is on the field and already terrorising his opposition. Luke Brooks comes up with a cheeky chip kick to the wing which just evades David Nofoaluma.


37th min: Nofoaluma showing his class, zooms in off his wing to step and power his way under the posts. Brooks created the opportunity with a booming 40/20.


Half Time


47th min: TRY! Kurtis Rowe scores for Wests Tigers after Leva Li slices through from 60m out.


52nd min: TRY! Big Curtis Sironen barges over out on the right in his return game.


56th min: TRY! Kurtis Rowe under the posts again supporting Manaia Cherrington who made a nice break around the ruck.


61st min: TRY! Nofoaluma crosses again. Brooks tries another cute kick to the corner post after the defence was sucked in. Nofoaluma claims the catch, steps inside the covering winger and dives over the line.


66th min: Curtis Sironen grabs himself a nice 40/20. Appears to have gone to the halves.


67th min: TRY! Winger Delouise Hoeter glides over inside the right corner post. This is all becoming a bit easy for a dominant Wests Tigers side.


74th min: TRY! Eels finally register points through halfback Zach Dockar-Clay who charges over to the right of the posts. Slack defence from Wests Tigers. The sting has gone out of the game.
