SYDNEY - Wests Tigers turned on the style at Leichhardt Oval on Friday night, beating Parramatta 31-18 to chalk up their second successive NRL victory.
Two first-half tries from Chris Lawrence and Blake Ayshford's four-pointer helped the hosts open up an 18-0 lead after they dominated the opening 40 minutes, claiming 69 per cent of possession.
The Eels struggled to get out of their own half for most of the opening stanza and were left to rue their discipline as the Tigers pinned them in their own territory.
Jacob Loko should have pulled four points back for the Eels on the stroke on halftime, but he dropped the ball close to the line having been put clear.
A Ryan Morgan try almost immediately after the restart finally put the Eels on the scoreboard but any hopes of victory were dashed in a crazy five-minute spell.
