Fulton out for season, Gibbs

Wests Tigers' lock Liam Fulton has been ruled out for the rest of the NRL season with a shoulder injury.

Coach Tim Sheens says Fulton will try and return in the latter part of the season, but he's more likely to sit out the whole year. Fulton injured his shoulder in the opening minutes of last Friday night's season-opening win against St George Illawarra at Telstra Stadium.

Meanwhile, prop Bryce Gibbs has re-signed with the premiers for another three years, tying him to the Tigers until 2009.
