El Masri enters record books as Manly implode

8:29 am on 15 March 2009

The Bulldogs winger Hazem El Masri has become the National Rugby League's greatest ever point-scorer.

The Dogs, who took the wooden spoon last season, completed a horror week for the premiers Manly, stunning them 34-12 in Sydney.

El Masri's penalty goal in the 33rd minute took him two points past Newcastle great Andrew Johns' 2,176 points.

He went on to kick seven from seven in a masterful display.

Across town the Sharks also won, beating Penrith 18-10.
