Marshall magic inspires Tigers

8:13 am on 27 March 2010

Kiwis captain Benji Marshall defied a rib injury to shine in his Wests Tigers' 23-12 win over the Parramatta Eels in the National Rugby League.

Marshall needed an injection just to play but scored two second half tries and created one of Lote Tuqiri's two four-pointers, even kicking a first-half field goal.

Tuqiri's now scored four tries in the first three matches of his return to league after seven years playing rugby union.

Also in Sydney, the unbeaten St George Illawarra Dragons thrashed the North Queensland Cowboys 33-8.
