A Josh Morris hat-trick has helped Canterbury-Bankstown snap their three-game losing streak with a thumping 46-12 victory over a hapless Parramatta at ANZ Stadium.
Des Hasler's men trailed 12-4 on the half-hour but exploded with three tries in six minutes to hold a handy 22-12 lead at the interval.
The onslaught continued at the resumption when Josh Reynolds scored a solo try eight minutes in before Morris completed his hat-trick in the 51st minute to put the contest beyond doubt.
Former Eel Jonathan Wright crossed on the hour before Bryson Goodwin completed the eight-tries-to-two romp when he slid over three minutes from full-time.
Goodwin also slotted seven-from-nine with the boot on the way to an 18-point haul.
It was a disastrous end to a night that started with great promise for the Eels, who completed their first 15 sets before slumping to their fourth straight loss.
A leg injury to off-season recruit Willie Tonga compounded the loss, with the Kangaroos centre limping from the field late in the contest, while Reni Maitua was placed on report for a high shot on Michael Ennis.
Out-of-form half-back Chris Sandow made a modest return to the top grade after being dropped to NSW Cup last week, failing to have an impact in his 31-minute cameo off the bench.
It was all Parramatta to start the game, but it was the Bulldogs who opened the scoring off the back of some Ben Barba magic in the 12th minute.
Barba put on some fancy footwork and attracted three defenders before slipping the ball to Kris Keating who timed his final pass perfectly to send Josh Morris steaming over in the corner untouched.
Parramatta hit back when Ryan Morgan leapt into the stratosphere and regathered a cross-kick from Casey McGuire for an easy try.
Luke Burt's conversion gave the Eels their first lead of the night at 6-4 in the 20th minute.
The Eels' second try also came from a kick.
This time it was Jarryd Hayne who rolled a deft grubber into the in-goal area, with a flying Ken Sio winning the race to the ball to score in the corner.
Burt slotted the sideline conversion to double the Eels' lead on the half-hour.
But the Bulldogs exploded with three tries in six minutes before the break to take a 10-point lead into the sheds.
Morris began the barrage after in-form prop Sam Kasiano put Kris Keating through a hole, with the former Eel feeding Morris for his second four-pointer on 34 minutes.
Livewire Josh Reynolds split the Eels' defence wide open three minutes later to send Tim Lafai over in the corner.
Kasiano produced another clever offload in the final minute of the half for the dangerous Barba, who unselfishly fed a flying Dene Halatau to send the backrower in under the posts.
The Eels were their own worst enemies to start the second half, producing three knock-ons in the first five minutes.
And the rampant Bulldogs took full advantage.
