Then Benji Marshall put Peter Mata’utia over.
Marshall next set up Tyson Frizell for a try just before half-time.
Josh Morris gave the Dogs some hope when he cut the lead to 12 points.

Soon after Joel Thompson touched down to extend St George Illawarra’s lead.
Marshall slotted a field goal and then Euan Aitken got over the line for his first ever try in the NRL. The Bulldogs were sunk.
