Robbie Farah says he'll be right to play this Sunday against the Penrith Panthers despite still carrying the shoudler injury he picked up during Game I of State of Origin.

Farah, who hasn't played a Club game since Round 10 due to his representative commitments and subsequent time off with the shoudler injury, said that there was no doubt he'll be right to return for Sunday's clash against the Panthers at Leichhardt Oval.

There's NOTHING like Sunday afternoon footy at Leichhardt Oval, so get your tickets and be there as we take on the Penrith Panthers!

"It's something that I'm going to have to keep managing," said Farah earlier today.

"The fact that I've had an 11-day turnaround after last Wednesday has given me a bit of time to work on it [the shoulder] and continue to strengthen it.

"So it's coming along okay, and it's something I'm going to have to stay on top of.

With two home games up next in the Penrith Panthers this Sunday and the Parramatta Eels Monday week heading into a Round 18 bye, Farah said that this week marked the start of a must-win period for the Club in order to keep their finals hopes alive.

"We're at a point in our season now where we can't afford to lose," Farah said.

"We've got to win — I want to be out there and I will be out there.

"We're equal last at the moment, but saying that, I still believe we can make the top eight.

"We've got Penrith this week and then Parramatta leading into a bye, so it's crucial that we pick up the six points in those three weeks, and then reassess from there.
