Bulldogs go to first outright on the NRL ladder after their massive win.
The Canterbury Bulldogs have won their sixth game on the trot, trouncing St George 38-6 at Sydney’s Olympic stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The Bulldogs were 10-0 up inside 10 minutes thanks to tries from Sam Perrett and Tony Williams, and they were never troubled in a seven tries to one romp.
Centre Tim Lafai had a day out against the Dragons’ defence, scoring a hat-trick in 19 minutes either side of half-time.
The Bulldogs led 22-0 at the break, and they went on with the job in the second half, with tries to Lafai, Greg Eastwood and Josh Reynolds.
Brett Morris went over for a consolation try in the 77th minute, but it was all too late for the Dragons.
Bulldogs half-back Trent Hodkinson was excellent with the boot, kicking five conversions, but he was placed on report in the first half for applying a leg twist to a Dragons player.
The win takes the Bulldogs to a 7-2 record, a game clear of their nearest rivals, with a points differential just under +100.
The Dragons have now lost five out of their last six, and are stuck on eight points.
