INTERNATIONAL CUP FINAL

Note: Russia won the play-off for third by a single point over Samoa, their celebrations rivaling any seen by premiership winning sides in recent memory!

WORLD SEVENS FINAL

First half:

TRY: Shane Elford goes over after sustained Tigers possession tells against the game weary Eels, try not converted.

HALFTIME: WESTS TIGERS 11 lead PARRAMATTA 0.

Second Half:

Bombed try by Parramatta, John Morris drops a Lyon kick with line wide open, Tigers on the backfoot after near perfect first half.

The crowd starts chanting ?Benji! Benji?, willing the Tigers whiz kid to do something special, he has been a fan favourite all day.

TRY: Luke Burt finally gets the Eels on the board with three and a half minutes left after slicing through the defence in his own half and scoring under the posts for a bonus try, he converts and the Eels are back in it.

TIGERS 11-7

TRY: Daniel Fitzhenry runs off Scott Sattler and over under the posts, converted, only a miracle can save the Eels now.

TIGERS 18-7

With time running down, the Eels get some injury to the insult of defeat, star playmaker and standout for the weekend Adam Dykes is prone on the ground with an apparent shoulder problem and backrower Dean Widders is struggling with an ankle complaint.

FULL TIME! Tigers hold on for a deserved victory and the joint-ventures first trophy.
