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 on Wednesday 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 fiery prop Bryce Gibbs.
