Farah, Gibbs to take on Knights

Wests Tigers coach Tim Sheens has declared hooker Robbie Farah and prop Bryce Gibbs certain starters for tomorrow night's must-win match against Newcastle.

Farah has trained without the aid of painkillers all week as he continues to nurse a hip pointer injury. The Dally M favourite failed to make it past the 15 minute mark of his side's loss to South Sydney last Sunday when a pre-game injection caused his leg to go numb.

Gibbs was named to make his comeback on the bench after overcoming a knee injury. The Tigers need to win the match and then rely on other results going their way if they are to force their way back into the top eight.
