Hayne in fine form for Eels

DARWIN - Jarryd Hayne scored his 100th NRL try as Parramatta notched a thrilling come-from-behind 18-10 win over Canberra in Darwin on Saturday night.

Hayne scorched across the TIO Stadium turf in the 72nd minute off a David Gower pass and raced 50m to touch down and put the Eels en route to their third successive win.

The superstar fullback joins Luke Burt (124) and Brett Kenny (110) as the third Eel to notch three figures in four pointers.

Hayne's try completed a double for the Eels co-captain after his 22th minute effort, and pulled the home side level at 10-all after a gusty Raiders side had led 10-6 at halftime and stoically defended their way through much of the second half.

The Raiders had Bureta Faraimo and Chris Sandow held up and tries to Tim Mannah and Hayne turned down by the video referees before the NSW No.1's match turner.

Sandow landed a difficult conversion of Hayne's second try from out wide to put the Eels ahead 12-10 for the first time in the match and a converted try to Tepai Moeroa sealed the win three minutes later.

"It's great to win like that, we didn't give up," Hayne told host broadcaster Fox Sports post-game.
