Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire said there will be no late scratching of Benji Marshall this week, with the veteran playmaker to definitely start against the Penrith Panthers tonight.

Marshall was named to return against the Roosters last week but was forced to withdraw due to a tight hamstring.

The 34‑year‑old has only played three games this NRL season but Maguire hopes Marshall's return alongside halfback Luke Brooks will begin a consistent period in the Wests Tigers' halves.

The Wests Tigers take on the Panthers at 8 tonight while the Sea Eagles meet the Broncos at 9.55pm.

In an NRL match played last night, the Sharks defeated the Titans 26-18.
