Wests Tigers have pulled off a stunning come-from-behind victory against the Parramatta Eels to remain undefeated in Jersey Flegg this season.
Having trailed 14-0 early in the match, Wests Tigers scored 30 unanswered points to record a 30-14 triumph at Merrylands Oval on Saturday.
The comeback began when Brandon Webster-Mansfield crossed just before half-time to reduce the deficit to eight points at the break.
The away side had the perfect start to the second half with Liam Scolari bagging a double within the space of five minutes — and the Wests Tigers players were beaming with confidence.
