WERRIBEE won its fourth match on the trot yesterday, toppling ladder-leading Geelong by 15 points at Skilled Stadium.

The final margin didn't do the Tigers' domination justice, as the Cats booted six unanswered goals in the final 16 minutes.

Before that, the margin had blown out to a whopping 50 points when Werribee spearhead James Podsiadly booted his fourth halfway into the final term.

The Tigers captain finished with 4.4; the same return as Western Bulldogs forward Matthew Robbins, who was lively in attack and fierce at the man when the Cats were on the rebound.

Geelong began strongly, kicking three of the first four goals, including two from Charlie Gardiner, who loomed as an early game-breaker playing on first-year Bulldog Andrejs Everitt.

However, the Tigers lifted their intensity and put on a clinic with a sublime, run-and-handball game. They stunned the Cats with 14 of the next 17 goals to record their most impressive win of the year.

Geelong looked hesitant and threw away its opportunities in front of goal. From halfway into the first quarter to early in the last term, all the Cats could muster was a woeful 2.17.

Bulldogs champion Chris Grant played his first match since early April after groin surgery. It was Grant's first game for Werribee, indeed his first reserves game in more than 14 years.

Grant played a defensive role and was rotated through the bench for the first three quarters, before sitting out the final term.
