The Mitsubishi Electric Bulldogs scored a resounding 56-8 win over the South Sydney Rabbitohs in their Premier League qualifying final at the Sydney Showground last Saturday.
The second placed Dogs were too classy for the seventh placed Rabbitohs putting on 5 first half tries to establish a 24-0 winning lead at the break.
The Dogs went on with it in the second half with classy five eighth Jonathan Thurston having a major impact on proceedings scoring 3 tries. In total the Dogs scored 11 tries.
The win moves the Bulldogs through to the Preliminary Finals in a fortnight's time and keeps the Dogs aspirations of back-to-back titles well alive.
