Wests Tigers piled on seven unanswered tries in wet Canberra conditions to pull off an emphatic 40-0 win over the Raiders on Saturday evening.

The yawning victory margin boosted Tim Sheens' men from eighth spot (14, -4) to third (16, +36), but the Bulldogs' win over South Sydney nudged them back into fourth behind Canterbury and Brisbane.

Inu saves Bulldogs again

Canterbury winger Krisnan Inu continued to sparkle in the blue and white after nailing the match-winning field goal in the Bulldogs' thrilling 23-18 win over South Sydney at the Olympic stadium on Saturday night.

A week after starring on debut for his new club after being unwanted by the Warriors, Inu was given the responsibility of breaking an 18-18 deadlock five minutes from full-time before David Stagg added a late try to propel the Bulldogs into the top four.

Full-back Billy Slater was in electric form as Melbourne consolidated top spot in the NRL, coming from behind to beat a gallant Warriors side 22-12 in Auckland on Sunday afternoon.

It was another typically enthralling encounter between the Storm and the Warriors, who have often given them problems in the past, and it took until the 57th minute before the visitors hit the front for the first time at Mt Smart Stadium.
