Bulldogs pip Tigers in golden point

A KRISNAN Inu field goal with less than a minute remaining in extra-time handed Canterbury a controversial 23-22 victory over Wests Tigers at the Olympic stadium on Friday night.

Inu calmly slotted the point from around 30 metres out as the Bulldogs tightened their grip on the minor premiership with their 12th consecutive win.

But the match, played in front of 29,194 fans, was marred by a video refereeing decision by Sean Hampstead, who awarded a 74th-minute try to Bulldogs winger Jonathan Wright.

The lanky flyer dived over in the left corner after Frank Pritchard ran behind Josh Morris who appeared to have impeded Tigers centre Blake Ayshford.

Tigers captain Robbie Farah exploded after the decision was made.
