Wests Tigers NRL finals chances have received a shot in the arm with Benji Marshall revealing he is confident of playing in Friday night's sudden death semi-final against Canberra.

Marshall bruised a medial ligament in his right knee in Saturday night's 19-15 golden point loss to the Sydney Roosters.

The Kiwis captain says with a premiership stake he'll do all he can to get back on the field to should know more tomorrow or Wednesday,


But the season's over for Marshall's New Zealand team-mate Frank Pritchard who tore a hamstring during Penrith's qualifying final loss to Canberra.

It's also the end of Pritchard's eight year career with the Panthers as he's moving to the Canterbury Bulldogs next season.
