Wests Tigers secure shock victory over St George-Illawarra Dragons

It was the Benji and Robbie show at Kogarah as the Wests Tigers upset St George- Illawarra Dragons by 20-16 on Sunday.

Robbie Farah set up three tries for the Tigers, while Benji Marshall showed some of his brilliant best to lead their side to victory.

The Tigers were not made to wait long to score first, with Luke Brooks crossing in the 10th minute from a short side raid led by Farah.

The Dragons hit back soon after through halfback Ben Hunt. The score remained 6-all at half time.

The Tigers hit the lead after 46 minutes on the back of more Farah brilliance.

Farah held up a pass to put Moses Mbye through a hole, before he set up winger Corey Thompson to score.

Farah then helped the Tigers extend their advantage, putting a deft kick in for David Nofoaluma to score.

The Tigers jumped out to a 20-6 lead, but tries to Gareth Widdop and Matt Dufty helped the Dragons roar back into the game.

But the Tigers hung on to win by four points.
