Farah and Gibbs out,
Payne cleared

Wests Tigers hooker Robbie Farah is expected to be out for between four and six weeks after breaking his right hand in his side's bruising 47-12 loss to the Bulldogs.

Farah, who underwent surgery today, played with the injury through 65 minutes of Friday night's clash. The Tigers will also be without prop Bryce Gibbs for their match against the New Zealand Warriors in Christchurch on Sunday after he was heavily concussed after coming off second best in a collision with Bulldogs powerhouse Mark O'Meley.

Meanwhile, North Queensland hooker Aaron Payne has been cleared of a serious neck injury from his side's 20-16 win over Manly.
