Marshall confident in Tigers

Benji Marshall says Wests Tigers are more than capable of improving their results despite suffering three consecutive defeats.

The Tigers fell to a demoralising 30-16 loss to Canberra at Campbelltown on Monday night and haven’t won since their narrow opening round victory over Cronulla.

But skipper Marshall, who has been deputising for the suspended Robbie Farah, insists the Tigers squad is tight-knit and won’t panic.

”To get through times when they’re tough you’ve got to be close as a team, and we’re very close,’’ Marshall said.

“At the same time it’s not panic stations yet. We’re not at the back end of the season yet and we have to win every game to stay in the comp.

“We’ve lost three games now, there’s only one way to turn it around and that’s win the next one.”

The task for Marshall and his players begins with Sunday’s round 5 clash with South Sydney at the Sydney Football Stadium.

Farah, who is currently serving a two match ban for a dangerous throw on St George halfback Ben Hornby, will miss the match.

Liam Fulton, who stood in at hooker against the Raiders, is expected to retain his place.
