Moses the hero as Eels win thriller

Mitchell Moses' heroics inspired the Eels to a 25-24 win over the Titans in a thrilling finish at CommBank Stadium on Sunday.

The Eels halfback landed an equalising conversion from the sideline in the closing stages, before nailing a match-winning field goal in the 74th minute to hand Parramatta an exciting victory.

Moses' moments of magic came after Clint Gutherson scored a magnificent try in the corner, contorting his body mid-air to touch down tremendously.

The Eels overcame a six-minute period reduced to eleven players when both Reagan Campbell-Gillard and Maika Sivo were sin-binned to come away with victory.

The Eels flew out of the blocks to race to a 12-0 lead inside 12 minutes.

Reagan Campbell-Gillard scored on the Eels’ first attacking set, storming onto Brendan Hands’ pass out of dummy half for the opening try.

Will Penisini doubled the Eels lead soon after, scooping up the ball and strolling over the line after some terrific Parramatta ball movement.

The Eels were in cruise control, before the Titans clawed their way back into the contest as Alofiana Khan-Pereira leaped over.

Parramatta’s strong start then spun out of control, as both Maika Sivo and Reagan Campbell-Gillard were sent to the sin bin for dangerous contact.

The incidents were separated by just a few moments, reducing the Eels to eleven players for six minutes.

The Titans capitalised on their two-man advantage, with Phillip Sami and Khan-Pereira scoring quickfire tries to put the visitors ahead 14-12.

A penalty goal apiece before the break saw the Titans hit the sheds with a 16-14 lead.

Bryce Cartwright put Parramatta back ahead early in the second half when he bulldozed over from dummy half for a rugby-esque try.

But the Titans swiftly responded as Tanah Boyd sliced through a staggered defensive line.

Another penalty goal gave the Titans a 24-18 lead, and the Eels were struggling to find a response.

That was until Clint Gutherson produced one of the tries of the year to reignite Parramatta's night.

On a play which seemed set to fizzle into nothing, Gutherson took the ball and set his sights on the corner. The Eels captain leaped and contorted his body to plant the ball in the corner just millimetres away from the touchline.

Gutho scores a stunner!

Mitchell Moses then nailed his sideline conversion attempt to draw Parramatta level and tee up a nail-biting finale.

Cool, calm Moses levels it up

Moses was the man to win it for the Eels, as he slotted the decisive field goal with six minutes remaining to send the home crowd into raptures.
