Tweed’s experience and footy smarts gained the ascendancy after the first break but they didn’t have it all their own way. Jack Bailey was dominant in the ruck, and Adam Grey stood tall in defence, preventing a number of goals.

It was the Tigers’ day though and, when the ump called time, their running game had orchestrated an impressive win.

For the Bulldogs it was a solid hitout, leaving them primed for this week’s blockbuster against Casino.
