The Wests Tigers have taken out this weekends World Sevens with an 18-7 win over the Parramatta Eels in the final. The Tigers take home the purse of $100,000, but will take out of the tournament great confidence to embark on a better season for the club than previous years.

The Tigers raced out to an early 4-0 lead in the final and the Eels failed to make any inroads on their early sets. A great ball put Pat Richards away to score a 50 metre try to put the Tigers ahead 11-0 at the break.

Several chances were bombed by the Eels early in the 2nd half before Luke Burt raced away in a 70 metre individual try under the posts to give the Eels hope behind 11-7. But the Tigers hit straight back on the next set to put the game beyond doubt.

Congratulations to the Wests Tigers on their first victory at the top level as a merged entity.

The player of the Tournament was announced as Scott Sattler captain of the Tigers.
