Greg Inglis was the star of the show for the South Sydney Rabbitohs, running in four of his side’s ten tries in a 54-10 demolition of the Wests Tigers on Friday night.

The 26-year-old full-back showed why he’s one of the hottest-properties in the NRL, with one of his efforts a 95-yard solo run after Ben Murdoch-Masilla fumbled the ball close to the opposition goal line.

His 35th minute effort was one of seven first-half tries for the hosts at the ANZ Stadium, as the league leaders put the basement boys to the sword.

Nathan Merritt and Dylan Walker both crossed the whitewash inside ten minutes before Inglis grabbed the first of his four tries.

Beau Chapman, George Burgess and Sam Burgess then crossed over before the stunning individual effort, which finally got a reaction from the visitors as Marika Koroibete got the visitors on the scoreboard.

Adam Reynolds made sure it was only a quick glimmer of hope when he went over seven minutes into the second period, whilst Liam Fulton’s other consolation for the Tigers was sandwiched in-between Inglis’ final two tries.

Defeat leaves Tigers fans questioning where it's all gone wrong over the past 24 months, with star player Benji Marshall starting on the substitutes bench.

As for the Rabbitohs, they'll be hoping to keep the momentum rolling ahead of their clash against the Cronulla Sharks.
