Parramatta earn't the title of party poopers on Monday night after ending the Tigers 6-game winning streak with a strong 34-8 win at Telstra Stadium.

Leading 16-2 at the break after watching former teammate and Tigers captain Brett Hodgson kick his team to a 2-nil lead early in the game, the Eels used some excellent second phase play to score two quick tries to remain in the winners circle.

Captain Nathan Cayless - who dropped the ball in his own in-goal at the kick -off - spoke of his side interpreting Hodgson's decision to take the two points so early in the game as a 'sign of respect' for the Parramatta defence.

The Eels have now beaten Wests Tigers in both games played between the two sides this season.

Eels 38 (F Mateo 2, E Grothe, J Hayne, B Finch, B Smith, L Burt tries; Burt 5 goals) d Wests Tigers 8 (C Lawrence try; B Hodgson 2 goals) at Telstra Stadium. - Read More, Here
