Semi Radradra again starred for Parramatta Eels as they made it four NRL wins in five with a 28-16 away success against Wests Tigers.

Having seen the Tigers fight back from 12-0 down to go into half-time four points ahead, Radradra producing a stunning second-half showing in which he scored two tries and set up another to ensure victory for the Eels.

Tigers full-back James Tedesco saw a seventh-minute try chalked off by the video referee, before scores from Tim Mannah and Luke Kelly gave Parramatta a 12-point lead.

But Wests cut the gap to four thanks to a brace from Kevin Naiqama, who danced his way past Radradra for his first and then latched on to an excellent Tedesco kick.

Pat Richards completed the turnaround by converting his own try in the 35th minute before making it 16-12 at the break with a penalty.

Radradra put Parramatta back in front as he scored from a high kick from Corey Norman and then fed Chris Sandow with an offload after again showing his skills in the air to collect the scrum-half's bomb.

Sandow and Norman combined seven minutes from time to make sure of the points as the Fijian winger became the the first player in the State of Origin era to score multiple tries in five straight games.
