Dogs denied match-winner in thriller

6:32 am on 16 May 2009

St George Illawarra have held on for a dramatic 20-18 National Rugby League derby win over the Bulldogs in Sydney.

Bottles rained upon WIN Jubilee Oval after the video referee Steven Clark ruled out what seemed a legitimate match-winning try to the Bulldogs.

Bulldogs centre Jamal Idris looked like he'd stolen two points for the ladder leaders when he touched down with just 33 seconds on the clock, only for Clark to deny the four-pointer.

An innocuous obstruction play in the lead-up was the sticking point

Brisbane also thrashed the Gold Coast 32-18 at Suncorp Stadium with the young winger Israel Folau equalling the club record with four tries as the Broncos snapped a two-game losing streak.
