Parramatta have come from behind to end their four-game NRL losing streak with a 26-22 victory over the Wests Tigers at ANZ Stadium.

After trailing 22-10 with 25 minutes to play, the Eels scored three tries to take control on a mixed day for their future five-eighth, Mitchell Moses.

Two weeks after signing with the Eels for next season, but requesting an immediate release, Moses opened the scoring against his future club.

But he failed to close out the match for the Tigers, instead providing the crucial match-turning misdirected pass that allowed the Eels to streak away and score, after tries to Josh Hoffman and Kirisome Auva'a had drawn them close.


After fullback James Tedesco made a long break for the Tigers, Moses found grass, when he tried to throw a long ball to winger David Nofoaluma, only for Eels centre Michael Jennings to break free.

He was eventually tackled, but it put the Eels on the attack and Semi Radradra scored with nine minutes left. The Eels held on for victory after wasting their earlier opportunities.

The Tigers went to the break with a 16-10 lead, as Tedesco again reminded the NRL of his worth.

He set up two tries from dummy-half - one for Moses and the other for Suaso Sue - before Kevin Naiqama went in just before the break.

• After grooming a ready-made Johnathan Thurston replacement at the Four Nations, Mal Meninga has called for more Kangaroos tours.

The Kangaroo coach believed end-of-season tours, or even mid-year trips to NZ, would help to build depth and grow the international game.

"It is important that we take the Kangaroos brand and use it to spread the word about rugby league," he said.

"That means taking it to the people of Leeds, Wigan and London, but also France, Scotland and Ireland to increase awareness of our sport.

"But even in New Zealand, we have work to do."
