MITCHELL Moses will come up against his prospective new employers today but Wests Tigers coach Ivan Cleary said he was yet to make a call on when the in-demand star would leave for the Eels.

Parramatta have come from behind to end their four-game NRL losing streak with a 26-22 victory over the Wests Tigers at ANZ Stadium.

The Tigers' lead was down to two when Hoffman applied the finishing touches to a fine move for a converted try and it was Radradra who had the final say, taking advantage of space on the left after a break from Jennings had given the Eels great field position.

"Gutho is a footballer", Arthur said.

"His job is here to play for the Wests Tigers and his teammates".

Arthur is unsure what he will do with Gutherson and Takairangi once French returns next month, particularly if Moses arrives at the club mid-season after signing a fortnight ago.

With the Tigers in command at 22-12 up and hammering Parramatta's defensive line in the 59th minute, the Eels fill in five-eighth Takairangi showed all his skills to put on a momentum-swinging try for Kirosome Auva'a.

But he failed to close out the match for the Tigers, instead providing the crucial match-turning misdirected pass that allowed the Eels to streak away and score after tries to Josh Hoffman and Kirisome Auva'a had drawn them close.

Meanwhile off-contract Tedesco was the best for Tigers, reminding both the NRL and the merged club of his value.

Auva'a powered through two defenders on the right wing to restore his side's advantage, but things looked gloomy for the Eels when Sauaso Sue and Kevin Naiqama dotted down for the visitors, the latter collecting a beautifully weighted kick from Jack Littlejohn.
