Farah no chance of making Tigers
an hour ago
Robbie Farah is no chance of taking Luke Brooks’ spot in Wests Tigers line-up for Sunday’s NRL clash with North Queensland due to injury.
Brooks is out for up to five weeks with a knee injury and Farah has been mentioned as a possibility to move into the halfback role for the Tigers. However the NSW rake, who played in the halves after being dropped to reserve grade two weeks ago, is also sidelined with a calf injury.
Farah didn’t play for the Tigers reserve grade side last weekend and sat out training at Concord Oval on Monday.
Jack Littlejohn, Justin Hunt or Chris Lawrence will likely move into the Tigers halves alongside Mitchell Moses to meet the Cowboys.
Littlejohn played alongside Mitchell Moses in round one, when Brooks was missing due to suspension, while Lawrence filled in there in Saturday’s win over Parramatta.
Former South Sydney and Parramatta utility Hunt has been playing in the halves for much of the season in NSW Cup.
A late season surge has the Tigers in finals contention with five rounds to go ahead of Sunday’s round 22 clash with the Cowboys at Leichhardt Oval.
