Wests Tigers five-eighth Benji Marshall is confident he can overcome a knee injury and take on the Canberra Raiders in the sudden death semi-final at Canberra Stadium this Friday night.
Marshall left the field in the 75th minute after suffering a knee injury in the loss to the Sydney Roosters on Saturday night. A scan taken after the match showed the medial was still intact. Marshall did not take part in the team’s light games session this morning.
“I feel alright. I’ve had a few sleepless nights just trying to ice up and do everything I can to be right,’’ Marshall said.
“I am reasonably confident and it is just a matter of how much work I put into it is what I am going to get out of it. It is all about recovery at the moment.
“There is a premiership at stake and I will do everything I can. If it hurts I am going to have to go through a bit of pain.
“I will know more tomorrow or Wednesday but going on the last couple of days, it looks promising.
“I am sure the coach will give me every opportunity p to game day. Even if I can’t train this week, he has got enough faith in me to know that I will still be able to do the job.
“If I think I will be right game day, I will play.”
