Roosters star spine shocker in stunning Tigers upset

The Wests Tigers have sprang a major upset with yesterday's thrilling 10-8 NRL defeat of the star-studded Roosters in Sydney.

The Roosters were leading 8-4 on Saturday when Tigers winger Corey Thompson fielded a Lolohea long ball that ricocheted off Michael Chee Kam's head.

Coach Ivan Cleary credited all 17 of his Tigers after the "tough" performance but singled Marshall out for special praise.

Reynolds will have to wait another few weeks.

"The plan was for Benji to finish the game today, and that was one of the reasons why, the way he handled that 10 minutes (when Brooks was in the sin bin) and he played the whole game", Cleary said.

"It was a bit rusty, I really exhausted to be honest", Marshall, who left the Tigers on bad terms in 2013, said on the official Wests Tigers website.

It was an impressive performance overall from the Tigers, who also overcame the 42nd-minute sin-binning of halfback Luke Brooks for a professional foul.

The win steals the thunder of Roosters debutant and key signing Cooper Cronk.

If not for a bombed try from star fullback James Tedesco, who had a stinker of a Roosters debut, he would have also added a try assist.

Ferguson appeared to have saved his team's blushes when he finished off a 65th-minute try to give his team an 8-4 lead with 15 minutes to go.

But a Tedesco error gave his old team possession late in the match, paving the way for Thompson's heroics, which included drawing a penalty for the game- deciding set.

Benji Marshall back in Tigers stripes.

Cronk showed why the club were ready to give up on long-time halfback Mitchell Pearce, forcing two line dropouts and nailing a 40-20 to give the Roosters plenty of shots in attack.

Former Warriors prop Ben Matulino was strong in defence for the Tigers.

They repelled their highly fancied opponents throughout a dour first half to take a 2-0 lead into the break and only grew in confidence as the game wore on in the second half. "I think that was a big difference in our play".
