Farah’s season in doubt

Wests Tigers skipper Robbie Farah‘s season looks to be over after he picked up a hand injury in Friday’s defeat to Canterbury.

Scans showed that Farah suffered a fracture in the match against the Bulldogs and now faces an anxious wait on more tests.

“An x-ray this morning showed Farah has a fracture,” read a club statement.

“He then underwent a CT scan with the Club expecting the results on Monday. Farah may see a specialist subject to the results of the CT scan.”

The Tigers went down 23-22 courtesy of a golden point field goal kicked by Bulldogs centre Krisnan Inu, but both coach Tim Sheens and Farah were incensed by several refereeing decisions.

Farah was denied a try by referee Jared Maxwell while Canterbury benefited from a contentious decision from video referee Sean Hampstead to award Bulldogs winger Jonathan Wright a late score.

The result means the Tigers must beat the Roosters and Melbourne to qualify for the finals.
