SYDNEY - Wests Tigers say they are not getting ahead of themselves after jumping to the edge of the NRL top eight with a 46-18 thrashing of high-flying Canterbury at ANZ Stadium on Sunday.

Winger Keith Lulia bagged a club-record-equalling four tries as the Tigers piled on 34 unanswered points from 18-12 down midway through the first half.

Lulia and young gun Mitchell Moses were front and centre in the spectacular comeback.

Moses announced himself as a star of the future, the 19-year-old fullback setting up five tries in just his third NRL game.

He also ran for 113 metres, made two line breaks, kicked three goals and was assured under the high ball despite being a specialist five-eighth.

The match was the Moses and Lulia show with the No.1 credited with the assist on three of the winger's four tries.

Lulia's haul matched the Tigers' record mark held by Kevin McGuinness and Marika Koroibete.

The Tigers jumped to ninth place on the ladder on 22 points, only outside the top eight on for and against, to get their season back on track.
