Coming off their collapse against Canberra, the joint-venture side had a point to prove.
And the Tigers started the match on fire and got the first try in sensational circumstances. Kevin Naiquama brilliantly tapped the ball back for James Tedesco to score.
The Bulldogs almost hit back through Corey Thompson, but he just lost the ball at the wrong time.
Then Sausaso Sue got over the line, but he was ruled to have knocked the ball on.
But the Tigers kept coming. Naiquama added to his special try assist with a special try of his own.
Then Luke Brooks scored off his own bomb. The Tigers were flying at 18-0.
Just before half-time Frank Pritchard burst over for the Bulldogs to cut the lead to 12 points.
But in the second half the Tigers really cut loose. Naiquama and Tedesco combined for another try.
Then Luke Brooks got an easy try.
The Bulldogs managed to answer through Pritchard, to give them a little hope.
Then Curtis Rona crossed but it was too little too late.
Pat Ritchards got the final try as a nail in the Bulldogs’ coffin.
