Tigers says they could choke Dragons

6:16 am on 21 September 2010

The Wests Tigers' big guns have wasted no time in heaping the pressure on a St George Illawarra side desperate to shake off the chokers tag ahead of Saturday night's blockbuster NRL preliminary final.

As tickets went out the door faster than for last year's Canterbury-Parramatta match attended by nearly 75,000 fans, Benji Marshall and Lote Tuqiri went on the attack in the pre-game psychological battle .

Marshall says the Dragons are a tough side and they'll be expected to win so all the pressure's on them.

The Kiwis captain says he likes being the underdog while Tuqiri says the Tigers finished third and the Dragons won the minor premiership so they have more to lose.
