An inspirational performance from West Tigers skipper Koroisau silenced the outside noise with a superb 32-6 victory over the Sharks.

The crafty No.9 produced two try assists and five tackle breaks, while running 106 metres from dummy half and making 42 tackles.

Kikau produced his best performance since joining the Bulldogs from the Panthers at the start of last season.

He made it his personal mission to harass the Gold Coast playmakers late in tackle counts and was rewarded for it on several occasions, including his first half try which came after a charge down.

Eels star Campbell-Gillard met the in-form Manly forwards head on and helped wrestle momentum back for his side after a horror start.

The Eels beat Sea Eagles 28-24.
