Have heard that Wests Tigers have not put through his insurance papers as yet & are sending medical specialist's to the Gold Coast for another assessment & fitness test. Apparently West's are not happy Benji has been named to start.
Spanner / works / throw thereof.

Another hurdle for Marshall
Print this story Email this story to a friend Email Alert

An excessive insurance premium could yet rule star Kiwi stand-off Benji Marshall out of Friday night's Anzac test against Australia in Brisbane.

The 21-year-old Wests Tigers player was named in the starting lineup on Tuesday just a few week's after suffering a shoulder injury.

However the Daily Telegraph in Australia is reporting that Kiwi officials are awaiting an insurance premium quote from London, but if it is too high, then he may be dropped.

Wests Tigers are sending head trainer Andrew Leeds to the Gold Coast on Wednesday to check Marshall's troublesome shoulder.

NZRL general manager Peter Cordtz says because Marshall has a pre-existing problem, he'll have "a loaded premium".

Cordtz would not be drawn on how much they are prepared to pay to have Marshall in the side.

He could be ruled out due to an insurance premium? I understand that the Tigers want compensation for the entire amount of time he would be out if injured. No doubt the premium will be at the top end of the scale....

The Gate is expected to be 40000 paying an average of $30 each = $1.2m. That does not even include television rights.

What ever it is pay it. The punters are paying for a contest, not a fix.

If they pull Benji, pull the team!
