In a season of ups and downs and twists and turns, there has been one constant for the Parramatta Eels in 2015: Semi Radradra scoring four pointers.

The flying Fijian added two more tries in the Eels upset win against the Sea Eagles to take his tally to a league leading 21 — one ahead of Bulldogs winger Curtis Rona.

After missing out on the NRL's leading tryscorer to teammate Jarryd Hayne last year, Radradra has taken his game to a new level this year.

NRL.com stats reveal he is the most dangerous winger in the NRL with ball in hand with 22 line breaks, 47 tackle breaks and running an average of 170 metres a game.

In 47 career games he has now scored 45 tries.

His 2015 try-scoring feats have included:

— Nine tries in five games at Pirtek Stadium.

— Only four tryless games in 16 appearances.

— Five doubles and two hat-tricks.

— 16 tries in 10 games against Sydney clubs.

Radradra was also able to break a record set by Ray Preston in the 1950s for the most consecutive games with at least a try-scoring double during his amazing run between round 12 and 17 where he notched 11 tries.

All this after missing six games with injury.

When asked after the game about the record Radradra said: "I've been working every day after training practising catching, but the boys are helping me out a lot."

He is certainly helping them, too.

The Eels flyer has become the go to man on the left edge which has scored 65 per cent of the Eels' tries this season.

Radradra will go head-to-head with another excitement machine in Valentine Holmes when the Eels look to spoil the Sharks chances of a top four spot on Saturday at Pirtek Stadium.

In a game full of uncertainty, there are two things you can probably bank on — a Radradra try and a committed Eels effort.

It's something coach Brad Arthur was full of praise for after their win against Manly.

"The boys' effort has been outstanding.

"I feel like we're squeezing everything we can out of them and they're giving everything they can.

"I can sleep easy at night knowing we're competing and trying hard," he said.

"The effort has been there all year, it's just the execution . . . We'll get better at that."
