Marshall out for six weeks

Wests Tigers five-eighth Benji Marshall will be sidelined for at least six weeks following scans on his fractured cheekbone. Tigers club doctor Donald Kuah reviewed x-rays today which confirmed Marshall suffered a break in the facial bone during Friday night's opening round win over St George Illawarra.

Superstar playmaker Marshall will not need to undergo surgery. The club is still awaiting results of scans on lock Liam Fulton's dislocated shoulder.
