Marshall the target


North Queensland coach Graham Murray will aim human torpedo Luke O'Donnell at Benji Marshall at every opportunity tomorrow night in a bid to sink the cheeky young West Tigers' playmaker.

The Cowboys see 20-year-old Kiwi Test star Marshall as the danger man in their NRL grand final re-match. His head-to-head battle with in-form Cowboys five-eighth Johnathan Thurston is viewed by many as the key to deciding the expected Dairy Farmers Stadium sellout with almost 22,000 of the 25,000 tickets already sold.

Murray successfully employed the O'Donnell target tactic against Brisbane's champion playmaker Darren Lockyer in round one.
