If the Eels were courting a winger who could have has as much impact as former cult hero Semi Radradra, they’ve found him.
“I don’t know about the backflips,” Eels coach Brad Arthur said. “He said he’s back. He missed out with an injury and then he played last week and he was OK, but he prides himself on making a difference for us out of the backfield.
“I sent a message down with 25 minutes to go, ‘this is what you get paid for and go win us the game’. [There was] plenty of desire there too.”
Ferguson wasn’t the only Eels winger to shine as Parramatta preserved their flawless record at Bankwest Stadium, Maika Sivo grabbing a double including a long-range effort instigated by fullback Clint Gutherson.
