The Wests Tigers limped out of their casualty ward and dished out the medicine to South Sydney with a stunning 30-6 victory in their NRL clash at the Sydney Football Stadium on Friday night.
Missing four stars and with captain Robbie Farah battling a nagging groin injury, the Tigers turned on the razzle dazzle against a Rabbitohs outfit lacking intensity, handing coach Tim Sheens his first win in 18 attempts against John Lang-coached sides.
The home side also had to contend with losing prop Keith Galloway for the second half with a groin injury of his own.
Outstanding backrower Simon Dwyer bagged a double, while Benji Marshall, Wade McKinnon and Mitch Brown also scored tries for the Tigers, with the Rabbitohs' sole four-pointer coming courtesy of Chris Sandow.
Marshall booted five from six, while Sandow managed one for Souths in front of a crowd of 22,677.
The Souths prop Luke Stuart suffered a suspected anterior cruciate ligament injury which could end his season.
