Wests Tigers Coach Jason Taylor gives his final thoughts heading into Sunday's clash with the Brisbane Broncos, with kickoff from 4:00pm at Suncorp Stadium.

Taylor confirmed that captain Robbie Farah — who wasn't originally named to face the top-of-the-table Broncos this weekend — would miss the match due to a hand injury that kept him out of State of Origin III, but said that he was confident in the players that are available for Sunday's match that they would give a good account of themselves.

"No, [he won't play]," Taylor answered when asked at Saturday's press conference.

"It's just a day-to-day proposition with him [Robbie Farah] at the moment.

"Robbie is a player who is going to make a difference to any team, and it's definitely tougher not to have him in the team. But we've got really good replacements, and there's no reason why we can't be competitive in this game, even without him there.

"For us, [the rest of the season] is about opportunity," he continued. "Every week there's an opportunity to play the football we're working on and to keep improving.

"It's a massive challenge for us to go to Brisbane against the Broncos, but we're up for it.

"It doesn't matter if there's eight games to go, 10 games to go or one game to go, we'll be turning up and looking to improve on what we did last game, execute the things we've been working on in training and and keep improving as a team going forward."
