Wins for Dogs, Eels

6:47 am on 24 April 2010

The Bulldogs have thrashed the Brisbane Broncos 36-18 in their National Rugby League match in Sydney.

A powerhouse performance from centre Jamal Idris inspired the resurgent Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium, the giant 19-year-old almost unstoppable as he terrorised the Broncos defence.

Idris scored one try and laid on another with a brilliant flick pass to outshine Test centre Israel Folau all night.

The Parramatta Eels also won 24-18 at North Queensland, despite the return of Cowboys star Johnathan Thurston.

A shoulder injury was meant to keep out the skipper but Thurston was a late inclusion at five-eighth at Townsville's Dairy Farmers Stadium.
