Tigers rediscover spark in style

The Wests Tigers have ignited their season in stunning fashion with a comprehensive 38-18 victory over the North Queensland Cowboys in Townsville.

Wests produced arguably their best performance of 2011, running in six tries inspired largely by an invigorated performance from Benji Marshall.

The Tigers five-eighth scored with a brilliant solo stepping effort in the second half - he also had a hand in a number of four-pointers, while kicking a perfect seven from seven with the boot for a personal tally of 18 points.

Aside from Marshall, Origin forward Keith Galloway and lock Chris Heighington led the way superbly.

Speaking to ABC Grandstand directly after the match, hooker Robbie Farah said he sensed Wests were on the verge of an improved showing.
