Warriors season continues to spiral downhill

9:19 am on 16 August 2009

The Parramatta Eels maintain their late season bid for a National Rugby League final spot after thrashing visitors the New Zealand Warriors 40-4 win at Parramatta Stadium.

The Eels climbed to seventh on the back of their fifth straight win and biggest victory of the season and will have teams above them casting nervous glances after an eye-catching effort.

They scored seven tries to one, three of them in the first 15 minutes, with Jarrod Hayne featuring prominently in four of his side's tries.
