Koroisau is hard to tackle down: Marshall

Former West Tigers halfback Benjamin Marshall says Fiji Bati and Penrith Panthers hooker Apisai Koroisau is hard to tackle down. 
 
 Koroisau is the seventh Panthers included in the Blues squad for the second leg of the State of Origin. 
 
Marshall and Cooper Cronk  in an interview with Fox Sports explained that Koroisau is exactly the type of player to play alongside in Origin and will now get the chance to add to his singular game.
 
 "He has been consistent for the last few years for the Panthers, done a great job, he is tough through the middle, makes all his tackles, if you run straight at him he will put you on your backside," Marshall said.
 
"In that Origin level, he is the type of guy you want as well."
 
"He is just a point of difference too, he is a ducker, weaver, and a little bit different for the forwards to tackle," Cronk said.
 
"So if you start with Damien Cook who gets out real quick, then you have another point of difference to tackle Api Koroisau, bit like Ben Hunt and Harry Grant."
 
Origin Game 2 will be played in Perth this Sunday.
