Beware the Dogs: Langmack

The Bulldogs are back in the National Rugby League top four and nipping at the heels of the league leaders.

In a performance which showcased the club's premiership credentials, Steve Folkes' side wasn't at its best but still managed to score 10 tries against hapless South Sydney at Aussie Stadium.

And they did it without halfback and key playmaker Brent Sherwin.

The `Dogs moved into fourth spot behind the Sydney Roosters, Canberra and Penrith thanks to a 62-12 victory and the minor premiership is now a genuine possibility.

Rabbitohs coach Paul Langmack certainly walked away impressed.

"The Bulldogs are starting to peak at the right time and the teams up the top are a bit cautious about the roll they're starting to get onto," Langmack said.

The Roosters lead the competition on points differential from Canberra and Penrith after their enthralling 20-16 win over the Raiders on Friday night.

The match ended in acrimony, with Roosters coach Ricky Stuart fuming at an incident which led to forward Adrian Morley going on report for a high tackle on Mark McLinden at the behest of the video referee.

Stuart claimed he would teach his players from now on to stay down when they were hit high and let the video referee review incidents.

The NRL spoke with the Roosters over Stuart's comments.
