THE Tigers may be without inspirational skipper and star hooker Robbie Farah for their top end of the table blockbuster with the Dragons tomorrow night at WIN Jubilee Stadium.

The storm clouds were gathering at the Tigers final training session at Concord Oval this morning with halfback Robert Lui (knee) ruled out and fullback Wade McKinnon (hip) also in doubt.

Tim Sheens will not call on debutant halfback Blake Lazarus to fill the void left by Lui and is set to move centre Blake Ayshford into the No. 7 jersey.

Farah is in doubt with bruising to his left shin after he took a heavy knock in his side's round 15 win over Canberra and has not trained this week.

The hopeful NSW hooker said he still expects to play but Wests Tigers assistant coach Royce Simmons said Farah will have to prove his fitness tomorrow morning.

``Robbie Farah won't train with us today so that's a big blow, we'll have to wait and see if he's going to play,'' Simmons said.
Farah is desperate to be cleared to play to have one last shot at dislodging incumbent Blues rake Michael Ennis.

Liam Fulton will play at hooker if Farah is unable to recover from the knock.
