Ful­ton out for for six weeks

Townsville Bulletin - - Rugby League -

WESTS Tigers back­rower Liam Ful­ton will be side­lined for up to six weeks with a shoul­der in­jury suf­fered in the NRL open­ing round loss to Can­ter­bury on Mon­day night. Scans yes­ter­day re­vealed that Ful­ton has a sub-luxed left shoul­der and the Tigers ex­pect him to miss be­tween four to six weeks. There was some good news for Ful­ton with con­fir­ma­tion he would not re­quire surgery. Touted as ti­tle con­tenders af­ter a promis­ing 2010 and with a ros­ter brim­ming with rep­re­sen­ta­tive tal­ent, the Tigers looked be­low par in their 24-14 loss to the Bull­dogs. The Tigers host the War­riors at Le­ich­hardt Oval on Satur­day night and wel­come back Bryce Gibbs.
