St George brush aside Tigers

ST GEORGE Illawarra have shown that tales of their demise are very much exaggerated as they brushed aside an under-par Wests Tigers 36-12 in Friday night's NRL clash at Kogarah.

Dragons coach Steve Price binned the video of his side's 30-4 humbling by Canterbury last Saturday and vowed his side would move on from one of their worst performances for years.

And his players showed no ill-effects as they raced out to a 24-6 halftime lead thanks to tries from Mitch Rein, Dan Hunt, Nathan Fien and Ben Hornby.

Dragon's debutant Daniel Vidot and Ben Creagh crossed late in the game to seal the comprehensive victory, while Jamie Soward kicked six goals.

Beau Ryan and Joel Reddy were the try-scorers for the Tigers, who have now lost two successive matches and looked anything but pre-season premiership favourites as their much-vaunted attacking game failed to fire.
