Inspirational captain and hooker Robbie Farah has today been added to the Wests Tigers injury list.
Scans this afternoon revealed Farah suffered a fractured cheekbone and broken nose in NSW's victory over Queensland at ANZ Stadium last night in the opening game of the State of Origin series.
Farah expects to be out for two to three weeks and is hoping to be available for the second Origin game on June 26.
Earlier this week, forward Bodene Thompson, winger Matt Utai, lock Liam Fulton, and full-back James Tedesco were unavailable for selection for Sunday’s match against Penrith at Centrebet Stadium.
Thompson rolled an ankle at training last week and is not expected back until Round 17. Utai has a knee injury that will keep him sidelined for until Rd 19.
Tedesco (leg) and Fulton (knee) should be available for the round 14 match against Brisbane.
Centre Chris Lawrence (hamstring) and Blake Ayshford (ankle) are also hoping to return from a hamstring injury for the Broncos clash.
