MARSHALL AND FITZHENRY IN RACE FOR MOST TRIES
By Wayne Cousins
Thursday, 25 March 2010

Wests Tigers five-eighth Benji Marshall and winger Daniel Fitzhenry are locked together in the race to become the record holder for most tries for the club.

Marshall bagged two tries in the round two loss to the Sydney Roosters to move from 41 to 43 tries in 105 games for the Wests Tigers. In doing so, he equalled Fitzhenry’s record of 43 tries in 119 games.

Fitzhenry returned to the Wests Tigers this season after a two year stint with Hull KR in the English Super League in 2008-09. His experience and utility value has seen him play the first two rounds to take his tally to 43 tries in 121 games for the club.

Lurking in the background is giant winger Taniela Tuiaki who sits on 42 tries in 78 games for Wests Tigers.

Tuiaki enjoyed his finest season in 2009, scoring 21 tries in 22 games to set a record for most tries for the club in a season.

The barnstorming winger is still recovering from the ankle injury suffered in round 24 against the Eels last year. His return date remains indefinite.

Wests Tigers centre Chris Lawrence is just a few strides behind Tuiaki’s 42 tries, having scored 36 tries in 67 games since bursting on the NRL scene as a schoolboy in round 21 of the 2006 season.

Marshall remains the odds on favourite to set the all time record for most tries for Wests Tigers after recently signing a new deal that keeps the superstar at the club until the end of 2015.

Good we can scrap that one from the FWO's Fitzy resume.

You obviously missed Hayne spilling his lollies when Fitzy smashed him..
