Tigers' Payten out for up to six weeks

Wests Tigers suffered a blow with prop Todd Payten ruled out for up to six weeks with injury, just one game short of his 200th NRL appearance.

Scans on Payten's right hamstring have revealed a grade two tear suffered during Saturday night's 34-22 loss to Brisbane.

He joins Benji Marshall, Robbie Farah, Ryan O'Hara and Peni Tagive on the club's injury list.
