They temporarily move to the top of the ladder ahead of Penrith and St George Illawarra, who are yet to play this round, on points differential, while the Eels remain rooted to the bottom of the table.

It was also their seventh straight win - the first time they've achieved the feat since 1994.

The hosts had hoped to build on their drought-breaking win over North Queensland last week and appeared on their way when a Bevan French try gave his team an eight-point lead in the 25th minute.
