12:18 pm on 25 June 2012

The Canterbury Bulldogs gave the Melbourne Storm a 20-4 mauling Sunday in McKay to extend their winning streak to five straight, and cut the Storm's competition lead to four points.

Inspired by their fullback Ben Barba and playing before his home town crowd, the Bulldogs mastered wet, windy conditions with a classy four-tries-to-one effort.

In Sunday's other game Manly beat the Sydney Roosters 52-14.
